RCIA is, first and foremost, about encountering the person of Jesus through a community of believers. It is as much about the individual seeking conversion as it is about the whole community entering into that process and becoming converted. Our vision is sacred and ancient: we, as community, journey together to become that which we consume at each Eucharist: the Body of Christ. Just how we go about accomplishing this awesome challenge is a task that parishes and the Church at large have been working on for many years. Speaking for me and for my wonderful team members who are selfless stewards, this is our message to anyone contemplating the RCIA process:
We are here to build a bridge of trust with you.
We are here to listen to your questions and sort out your inner yearnings.
We are here to share stories–joys, struggles, sorrows.
We are here to provide information and formation in the Christian way of life.
We are here to pray with you and for you.
We are here to walk with you as you seek to go deeper.
We are here to help you with initiation, should you decide to become Catholic.
We are here to love and support you, whatever you choose.
We are here to serve you–with both food and spiritual nourishment–as you journey.
