Easter 2008

At  the Saturday Easter Vigil before Easter of 2008 I was accepted into the Catholic Church.  This was a happy day for me, with my Superior General there as my Sponsor into the Church, my mother, father, sister and niece all present to watch me enter into the Church.

This was the beginning of my new and lasting spiritual life.  (I’m the bald guy on the right in the black suit…)

In Christ!
