Well, hey what about those of us who went through RCIA and now are catechists?!?
You are right about some cradler’s who teach CCD. They sometimes don’t know the catechism very well. Most are good, doing the best they can with some pretty silly program materials. Most of what we have to choose from would not offend the average protestant.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean we should be offensive…
Like you said, those of us who chose the faith did some research. I wish more people kept forming themselves as adults. That is my biggest concern as Confirmation Team. Keep them growing, it is not a diploma. No one should stop their faith formation with an 8th grade perspective.
[quote=Genesis315]Probably because the RCIA education is better than the CCD education. Plus, converts usually educate themselves before converting. As converts, they’re also more passionate than us cradle Catholics who tend to sometimes take our faith for granted. I’m a cradle Catholic and I don’t remember much from CCD. I have basically catechized myself in the last few years. That’s just a thought.
