My RCIA Sponsor Journey  Evan Gooch

I remember last year, there were numerous announcements of sponsors needed for people wanting to join the Catholic Church. I ignored that call for a few weeks, but suddenly I started to think about what that would mean for me. I had been praying for opportunities to do more in the Church, but I was too scared to put myself out there for something new. I decided to reach out to Therese to gather more information about becoming a sponsor.

As soon as I sent that email, I feel like my faith immediately changed. I love my Catholic faith, and now I had the opportunity to share that love with someone just starting this journey. I was able to review my own faith during this process, and share with my candidate why we do certain things in mass or why we believe certain things. It was a rewarding process culminating on Easter Sunday.

I attended the Easter Vigil in the past, but this year it was different. It was like taking a long car ride to the beach. You have so much excitement for the destination, but you have to go through the drive in order to reach that destination. Once you arrive at the beach and you get out of the car and you breathe that fresh air, it is hard to explain that feeling. On Easter Vigil, after our journey through RCIA, that feeling is magnified exponentially. You just went on this journey with your candidate, and now you get to experience the initiation to the Catholic Church. It is such a moving experience, and I cannot wait to experience that feeling next year.

Accept this call.  Take the journey. Experience faith growth and powerful feelings.
