Eeek! The priest is coming to my house!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have made some inquiries about converting to Catholicism, and tomorrow my parish priest and the RCIA coordinator are coming to my house to interview me!

I am so nervous! They are coming at about 11am and said it will take about an hour? Should I serve morning tea?

What should I expect?

Don't worry it will be fine! I am in RCIA right now. We meet at the Church once a week. My first initial interview was with one of the RCIA teachers. We talked for about an hour, I gave my religious background and that of my family, she asked me some questions about my expectations etc. and then I asked some of my big questions that I needed to know the church's stance on up front. It was really great.

You are lucky to have the priest involved. I haven't spoken to any clergy members at my parish except the Deacon. I think that it will be an advantage to have the priest there too. Have you been attending the Church for awhile? Is your dh Catholic? Well it is quite an exciting journey to be on - best of luck to you! And I would serve tea it can't hurt.

Thanks SM!

It is a pretty small parish. I met the Priest at the very first mass I attended. I have already had one interview with the RCIA coordinator and been to a class, and I think the next step is for me to be interviewed by the Priest.

I will serve morning tea - they decided that because I homeschool it would be easier for them to come here.

My husband and I are separated (for eighteen months) but he is Seventh Day Adventist. However, my father and his extended family are all Catholic.

I know I don't have to tell you this, but isn't it just wonderful?! I love this feeling of finally being at "home". :::
