RCIA

RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. Basically it is the process by which a person (an adult) may become Catholic. I will be attending RCIA classes from now until about a month after Easter Vigil. My first class was on Wednesday.

I was happy to see that there were several others interested in the Church. I was worried for a while that I might be the only one. Our class by most standards is small with only about 8 or 9 people total, but I think it is just right. I didn't learn really anything new the first night. Of course I've been reading several books so I feel I'm already fairly educated. But I am looking forward to learning more and getting some questions answered.

I hope I find a sponsor that will be helpful. I'm not sure who to ask at this point, but I guess there is time. The person that has been wonderful and I feel the closest to brought me a copy of the Catechism tonight. I've been wanting one, but just haven't bought it. I'm really glad that I now have the opportunity to start looking into it.

I did my first bit of "homework" tonight. It was about faith and it gave me a lot to think about, but that will have to wait for another post.
