Went and saw Father yesterday afternoon and sure enough, he wants me and another 'newbie' (she converted the year after I did) to 'co-chair' the RCIA program. I am still unsure if I want to do this. I feel it is so over my head! That and the program has changed since when I did it (a turn around in team members) I LOVED my year. It was very relaxed and there were a lot of good questions brought up... just good all over. The 2nd year wasn't near as nice... just kinda stuffy. Though I was told by the pastoral assistant that we had then, that she loved when I was there b/c of my humorous comments. For example... "It was a giant Fish, not a whale!!"
I must admit that I have a huge interest in Theology. I love History of any kind and the History of the bible has always been of interest... first, I did everything in my power to poo poo what the bible said... and now I am more interested in where the stories came from.
Father did say that it wasn't like he wanted us to do all the talks, but maybe a few this year type of thing. The other newbie was officially on the team this past year. I was there until X-mas but not 'officially'.
Anyway, he told me to pray on it and let him know.
He also wants me to take over the Folk choir. Some of you may remember a few years back when I lead the Gospel choir and the problems and joys I went through. I was also a hormonal pregnant woman!! Father said that he really enjoyed the music we sang and that he missed it. I would love to lead the choir, but it was a lot of work I didn't really want to deal with anymore. At least this time around I am more 'experienced' and know a little more of what the heck I am doing! *lol* BUT and this is a HUGE BUT. We all assumed that the gentleman that plays the piano will be the new leader. I don't want to step on any toes b/c he is a great player!! But he is the VP at the Catholic School. (my kids don't go there b/c they are in French Immersion) And there seems to be a revolving door in the Office and Father said that he didn't want to run in to the problem of having to find another choir leader or loose the only 'fun' choir.
So that's it in a nut shell....
