I was looking into groups to join at the university I will be attending the next year and I found the Catholic Student Association (this campus doesn’t have a Newman Center or an actual campus ministry) and they all seem like very kind people. I want to join this group because it seems like an ideal group for me to meet friends that share my values and faith. It is also nice to have someone faithful to go to mass with as opposed to going by yourself right?
The only thing I feel uneasy about is the fact that I am not totally Catholic. I am, as I put it, in training at the moment. I feel like I would be intruding if I were to just waltz in and take part in activities for people who are Catholic. Would it be better for me to join when I am finished RCIA or should I jump right in and meet some seemingly great people to share the faith with?
ps. I am not like totally clueless I do attend mass when I have the chance, my dad’s entire family is catholic, and I went to catholic school for a few years, if that helps with anything.
