I have a few questions about the RCIA rites.
I am about to begin the program (we start in Jan. in our parish) and I’ve been doing my “homework” reading the Compendium and portions of the CCC that the Compendium raises questions on. Thanks to the WONDERFUL people here at CAF I have learned piles of information and am immensely grateful to all of you.
A little “background” here - I will be the only person in my RCIA class. This isn’t necessarily due to a “bad” program - more or less I live in a very rural community and there just aren’t that many of us!
I have been told by the RE’s at both parishes our priest cares for that he “doesn’t bother with the rites and formalities” for RCIA.
For some reason - this rubs me as VERY WRONG. Am I correct that this is a problem? And if so, should I request of our priest that I be given all of the rites?
Opinions solicited for a very lost woman without another parish to consider!
