HOW DID THE RCIA PROCESS HELP YOU IN YOUR FAITH JOURNEY?

I asked this question of RCIA members, and here are some of their responses: 

“Spiritually I am now a soldier of Christ whereas before I was not.”  R.R. 2015

 

“The RCIA class was a wonderful thing the church provides.  It teaches you the truth about the faith, and explains why we believe what we do, and clears up any misconceptions.  My experience with Protestant churches had been just say you wanted to join and you were in.  No training on what that denomination believed and why.  I love the Catholic Church.  When we are out of town and cannot attend mass at St. Jude, we always attend where we are, and feel like a part of that church while attending mass, not a visitor.  It is truly heartwarming.”  J.W. 2015

 

“My deepening dating relationship with my fiancé, the pull of Reconciliation, the beauty of the Mass itself and the fact that I was actually feeling spiritually FED…all these things pulled me in to RCIA.  RCIA isn’t a one-lane, no-stops trip to becoming a Catholic.  It’s part of an inquiry process, and there’s no “obligation” to join at the end if you’re still of inquiring mind.  But I knew—at least for me—that once I was in, I was a goner for the Church.”  A.R. 1998 

 

“The RCIA program has been what I hoped it would be.  The entire team has been great and full of knowledge.  They are all able to clarify questions or confusion.  We have a lot of great resources available to us.  Thanks to everyone on the RCIA team who has been committed to make this a positive and wonderful experience.”  C.T. 2013

 

“RCIA has been helpful to me for many different reasons.  The different parts of the Mass have been broken down for us.  We learned how the Catholic Church is organized.  Knowing that so many volunteers are prepared and waiting for us every class night helps keep me motivated to learn.  My daughter and I both make sacrifices every week so that I can attend RCIA, but I walk out of class feeling that those sacrifices are worth it.”  J.M. 2013

 

“RCIA ushered me into falling in love with the Church.  Some of the relationships that began in those weekly classes are still very precious to me and have helped me realize how lucky I am to be a Catholic woman.  I have made lifelong connections, and they are not of the shallow variety that life so often presents us with.  The dedication of the volunteers and teachers is a powerful testimony to how beloved our faith is, and also illustrates what a gift it is to be the recipient of the knowledge, humor, support, love and guidance of all the wonderful people who serve with RCIA.  I LOVE my Church.  I would not be making it through these hard, long days caring for my very seriously ill Mom without the faith cradling me and helping me pray when I don’t have words.”  B.L. 2015 

 

I love these stories.  They are so beautiful and sincere and each one is now a member of St. Jude Parish.  Each one left the comfort of their living room couch and walked into the RCIA classroom—not knowing exactly what to expect.  Each one traveled their own faith journey that culminated at the Easter Vigil Mass when they joined the church.   If you know anyone who would like to check out the Catholic Church, please tell them to call me - Diana Wolfe – 838-1113; or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
