Good for you returning to RCIA. Hope you are able to finish and be baptized at Easter.

Our grandson is sponsor for his closest friend who is becoming Catholic this year. His friend is the God father of our great-grandson. Obviously I'm up in years, but remember teaching RCIA for 16 years.

May your bipolar become controlled and your life be blessed.

I missed this thread when it was started but I was also a catachumen this year and was baptized/confirmed at Easter. It's a big change for me. I've always been Christian but for a long time I didn't believe going to church was for me and I prayed and studies scripture at home. I was raised protestant but no emphasis was ever placed on going to church- I don't think my parents ever took me. My grandparents on my dad's side took me to Methodist church when I visited them. Some neighbors took me to Presbyterian, Baptist and Mormon churches over the years. The past few years I have felt more and more drawn to Roman Catholicism. After shuffling my feet for a few years, I finally did something about it.

I hope you're loving the Faith.

Welcome to the Catholic Church!!!! I have been Catholic all my life, my mom was Methodist and we would go to her Church sometimes, I have MANY fond childhood memories of her church, but as I have grown older I have come to appreciate and LOVE my Catholic Faith. God BLess.

That is great news. I made some good solid friendships in RCIA, I hope you do as well. I found the journey to be more than worth it, I'm glad the Church has RCIA and doesn't just make people members overnight. It's important to understand the Faith, and I think also by putting in the time you value it more.
