Fifteen people received Sacraments of Initiation on Holy Saturday night!


This year at the Easter Vigil Mass, 15 youth and adults completed their reception into full communion in the Catholic Church. All received the sacrament of Confirmation most made their First Communion, and eight had the joy of being baptized, eucharistized, and confirmed – all on that same night.

The newly baptized members of our parish are Elizabeth Amerman, Dennis Ballester, Sudesh Bhagirathy, Adam Davis, Klaudio Marku. Brandon Bobinski and Edward Louis Wittkofski, baptized non-Catholic Christians, were received into full communion in the Catholic Church. The remaining 8 candidates were baptized Catholics who completed their sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation. Congratulations to all – welcome into full fellowship in St. Joseph Parish.
