After a tremendous Easter Vigil I'd like to wish you all a very happy Easter. Tonight I was able to baptise a lady who has desired to become a Catholic for the last six years. I suppose in every parish there are people who desperately want to become members of the Church and yet somehow it doesn't happen immediately. It has to be in the Holy Spirit's time. It always reminds me of the priority of grace in our lives. Anyway I was particularly pleased to baptise and confirm Nichola tonight.
I also received Gavin (pictured here with his parents). Gavin is a young jazz musician. His parents baptised him Methodist and it was good to see them present at the Vigil tonight.
