Thank you for your quick reply, i have to completely agree i started the program late 2 weeks ago it had been going on since September. In the meetings i often feel a little lost if i had to give my knowledge of the christian faith a number on the scale of 1-10 i would most definitly be a 1, but i want to learn and commit myself to a life of faith so i am learning.
When i attended mass last time there was nothing in the pews, no one was reading from anything it was done by memory this is why i want to learn it and commit to memory for next time i attend :)
Don't worry about committing it to memory that fast. No one expects that much. You will learn the responses by heart after hearing it every Sunday. It just takes some time. More importantly is to be attentive and prayerful, and recognize WHO is present at the Mass (Christ Himself). If you are interested, here is a link to what I believe is an accurate rendering of the order of the Mass. (Notice that some sections have multiple variations that can be used depending on the Mass and preference of the priest.)
As this is almost Lent (which is the 40 days before Easter), and Lent begins February 13th, and your admitted knowledge of the Catholic faith is a 1, I would highly encourage that you not be initiated this Easter Vigil. I would encourage you to remain in RCIA through Easter, and re-enroll in September this year. That would allow you to fully explore the faith, ask all your questions, and really learn the faith. Becoming Catholic entails a lot of rights AND responsibilities that you should know about before doing so. I encourage you to speak with your pastor and RCIA director, and let them know your situation, speak with them frankly about your questions, and let them know that you feel lost and don't know much about the faith. They will be able to make a good decision.
