Kaitlyn Kicia was baptized Catholic, but was never confirmed.  She is very close to her two younger sisters - they all overlapped at Virginia Tech for one year - and their decision to be confirmed last year encouraged Kaitlyn to finish her sacraments of initiation.  She chose to participate in the RCIA program at St. Josaphat because she lives in the neighborhood, the church is beautiful, and she likes the connection with the school.

Through the RCIA program, Kaitlyn hopes to grow in her faith,  gain a better understanding of Catholicism and get closer to God.  After becoming confirmed, she most looks forward to becoming part of a global, long-standing community.

Kaitlyn grew up in Connecticut with her parents and two sisters.  Her parents still live on the East Coast, and most of her family is from the northeast.  She loves to cook new recipes, exercise (cycling, running and boxing classes) and socializing with friends and family.

Everyone, please keep Kaitlyn in your prayers and welcome her to our St. Josaphat community!
