First meeting of RCIA

Well...I just joined this community. LJ seemed to have issues when I clicked on the community, so I didn't get to read any of the info.

Anyway, we just had our first RCIA meeting of the year. I'm a candidate. I've been attending the Catholic church here for about five years. I sat in on all of the classes a couple of years ago to learn more about the faith and history of the Catholic church, and this year I felt like I was ready to fully become a member of the church. I'm really looking forward to reading about others' experiences going through this process. (There are only three others going through RCIA so far in my church.)

I'll probably add more info later, but I'm not sure what else to say at the moment.

Thank you. I don't have a sponcer yet, (my roommate from college introduced me to the catholic church and was my first choice, but the pastoral associate really wants me to get to know other people in the parish) and due to various family and work events going on, I haven't made it to church in a few weeks. I'm hoping this is not a bad sign.
Hi, glad to have you join this community. Any questions you want to ask, this is a good place.

I'm moderator of our parish RCIA, and we'll be starting again in a couple of weeks. We've got three people studying with us who started back in the winter.

It's great that you've made the decision to go all the way and join up. Since we're celebrating 2000 years since the birth of St. Paul, I think this is going to be a year of special grace for those converting.

Keep in touch!
Thank you. I will definately keep in touch.
Welcome to the community.

I was a Catechumen back in 2005, received in to the Catholic Church during Easter Vigil with five other women in 2006. It was the most profoundly humbling experience of my life, one that I look back on with gratitude and awe.

Wishing you peace and Gods Grace throughout the year - feel free to ask away :)
Thank you! I will definately bring questions here.
