I am on my Parish RCIA team, and we face a lot of frustration over the length of the process. Understandably! When people who wrestle with the decision finally decide to do it, they are ready jump in all the way!
It helps to remember that RCIA is meant to be an apprenticeship. Not just some catechesis and classes and hoops to jump through. It is a spiritual apprenticeship into being a disciple. You learn ABOUT what you profess as a Catholic so you can give a true assent to the faith and profess that faith as your own. You learn how we worship in our rituals and Sacraments and most importantly in the Mass. You are also supposed to learn how you fit in—how you can be a member of the Body of Christ in action as well as creed. What gifts and talents did God design you to utilize? What fulfills you in a deep spiritual sense? There will be a ministry or an outreach or an intellectual study or something else that will help you meet people and share your faith and be strengthened by theirs.
At the end of the process, you should be prepared to be initiated into a community of people who you know, who knows you, and with whom you profess one faith.
Ideally. In reality, people are so busy we can hardly get them to come to the catechesis, let alone to any service projects designed to help them see what the Holy Spirit might be calling them to in the Church, let alone giving them a chance to form personal relationships with people in the Church community in that same amount of time!
So unfortunately some of it will fall on your own initiative. Don’t hesitate to get involved, and don’t let a few people who may not be very helpful or welcoming stop you. God has a plan for you in His Church! Those people just might not be in on it.
