I am currently in RCIA and will officially come into the Church this Easter. I would like to hear some opinions from you all on enrolling my soon to be 10 year old daughter into Catholic school.
She will be just fine academically , what I know she will be "behind the curve" in is obviously Catholic religion and Christianity for that matter. I regretfully admit I have not did a great job of teaching, and letting her experience the greatness of religion. This I want to do soooo much now that I have came home and know how important it it. Everyone I talk to obviously says its never too late etc...which I truly believe as I am 36 and are just now entering a church of the first time.
What I am concerned with is her being a child and is so far behind the curve in the religion that she may feel uncomfortable etc. I am willing to do WHATEVER I need to do to make this more of a smooth transition for her but I also want her to lean the Catholic faith fully.
Hope that made some kind of sense.....
I look forward to hearing your opinions.
WELCOME HOME!!!!!!!:thumbsup::dancing::extrahappy: As a "revert" who was away from the faith of my childhood for over 20 years, I am so happy for you!!!!
As for the school...Most Catholic schools if not all of them, have kids of faiths other than Catholic, even other than Christian, enrolled. These students take the Religion classes as just another class where they are expected to master the material. I would think that any school you find for your daughter will have at least a few other new students, and some of them might be of another faith, so also coming in "fresh" to the Catholic material.
I take it your daughter has not been baptized or attended church? There are books and programs you can obtain in order to start also teaching her. The good thing is that you can learn more about the faith together, and you will not be seen as the Expert on High but as her father who cares about her soul.
Just go visit the schools and pick the one that is most right for your family. Good luck and again, Welcome Home!!!!
