In the JosaFASTs this Lent, our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) candidates and their sponsors will be sharing their thoughts on the RCIA program, Lent, and their faith journey. They have been meeting with the RCIA team for some months and now enter their final, intense period of formation and preparation for this significant moment in their faith lives.
The RCIA process has been a fulfilling experience of understanding the Catholic faith, the church and community within. Through their teachings, Mary Jane Sullivan and Deacon Pat have helped satisfy my yearning to connect my life on this planet, its purpose, and God.
I have thoroughly enjoyed our meetings and will remember and cherish them forever. I will also make this starting point in my faith an opportunity to offer my contribution within the church community to benefit others in need.
For years I have looked for direction and a sense of being. It was only after I met my wife and her family and now experiencing the RCIA program, that my family life, church and God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, has solidified together.
