Has my first session today , very small group like one old guy one mother and me and I’m the only student but its okay but father said on arranging dates for the meetings to work around christmas and Easter so that tells me I’m not going to be received into the church at Easter and also that He also said that since different people are at different stages of their faith will ‘see how it goes’ in conversion terms so that’s not even a denfinate yes so maybe I should express 100% to him that I want to convert and be received church ?

Hi Chuck,
I wouldn't necessarily say that you aren't being accepted because;
Our journey through RCIA leads to our initiation into the Catholic Church through Confirmation at the Easter Vigil. After that, we enter a period known as *Mystagogy. * Classes still continue AFTER Easter. Most people just assume once Easter comes, that RCIA is finished.
If I were you, I would ask your Priest, or RCIA instructor.

God bless

The Easter Vigil Mass is usually when the un-baptized catechumens are received into the Church, and baptized Christians can be received into the Church at any other time of the year. Some smaller parishes bring everybody in on the Easter Vigil Mass because lack of manpower or convenience. The average baptized Christian spends about 1 year in our RCIA program (depending on on divorce issues).
