This picture is a true and accurate image of a portion of the crazy people who I hang out with on Monday nights. All of these characters are a part of the RCIA team (there are a couple more too) who facilitate the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults for St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Modesto. I went through the program as a Catechumen in 1999 and have been hanging around ever since. We meet every Monday from 7-9 at the church. There are so many wonderful stories and experiences I could share but the most important component of this program are the fabulous people pictured here and many, many others who didn't make the shot. My relationship with them is unique to each individual and a priceless treasure.
