So I just started the process of RCIA but prior to RCIA I did some personal study and asked a lot of questions. I’m a young woman trying to figure out my place in life. I’m curious about religious life. I know that formal discernment cannot take place until after I’ve been received into the church. I also know that it’s a recommendation/requirement to wait 1-2 years after confirmation. Should I plan on waiting at least 2 years after confirmation? Is that a wise move? I feel like if I did that it’d give me a chance to explore what the life of a catholic layperson was like and get more involved in my parish.
