I just sent my first question in but it has to be approved and may or may not be answered. I didn’t realize I posted it in a different section.
Also first off I just joined the site today (i’ve seen posts in the past). I was baptized as an infant but my family only went to church on the holidays (unless I was with my grandparents). So after going to a few different catholic churches on and off for many years (from moving and just life)I ended up back at my old catholic church that my family would attend periodically (which feels like home). After meeting with my Fr. and Deacon I’ve decided that want to join the church (after attending weekly service for the past year and a half, reading the catechism and am in the process a 2nd time, doing daily prayer) and I am now going through the RCIA process.
WDC form the cross on their forehead, chin and heart (towards the beginning of service when talk about mark or luke I believe)?
What do you suggest to do during mass. Since I can’t take communion I just sit toward the end of the isle and as people take communion I just stand there or quietly move out of the isle until my section is back. I’ve had a few members ask me why I don’t take it (since they’ve seen me attend service for a while). Is there anything I can do? It’s just awkward and I just can’t wait to participate.
How long does that process take? I’ve read that some people have taken weeks to a few months and others years to complete the process. I just know that I am ready and I don’t want to wait 6-8 months to complete. I’m not trying to rush the process but I just feel i’m more ready then others. I know that there are tons more questions that I have and will learn about during my process (WDC certain things)
I know I’m going to have tons of questions and I forget to ask during RCIA meetings.
