True Happiness, Peace and Joy!

I baptize Sawyer at St. George on July 17th. Sawyer is being held by his father with his mother and brother close by.

Being a Catholic Deacon involves a lot of things.  Most of us are involved in social justice ministries, we prepare couples for marriage, we stand up for the voiceless, the poor and the vulnerable, we preside at funerals and weddings and try to always be bridges and not walls as we serve others.  All that said, one of the most joyous things we do is baptize young children.  I am always inspired by the spirit of holiness, welcome, happiness and peace present at each baptism.  Yesterday was just such an occasion when I baptized Sawyer, the son and grandson of some dear friends. Sawyer, welcome into the great Christian community!
