It is with great joy that we welcome into our St. Mary of False River church family twelve neophytes who received the Sacraments of Initiation during the Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday.  Receiving the Sacrament of Baptism are Brooke Olinde, Jalen Pierrotti, Sheldon Bernard, Kellon Bernard, Cameron Carle, Morgan Wilkes and Molly Talbot. These seven elect were confirmed and received Holy Eucharist along with Justin Dicapo, Anna Magee Ewing, Katie Jewell, William Sinclair and Katie Wall. 

The RCIA team Tom and Patrice Robinson, Angie Allen and Gale Roy extend thanks to Father Mike and Deacon Danny for their knowledge, encouragement and support.  It is with much gratitude that we recognize the families of our twelve newly confirmed, the Godparents and sponsors and the special group of parishioners who came to our "in church" sessions to share the richness of our Catholic faith. 

May the Lord continue to touch your lives and may you be the light of Christ for someone else!  Easter blessings!
