"I baptized you with water; but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."

We celebrated Blaise's baptism this past Sunday, October 17th, during the 9 am mass at Blessed Sacrament. It was beautiful to share in our son's first sacrament with the support of our family, friends, and church community.

"Blaise, I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit".

40 Days for Life!

Our family has been fortunate enough to pick up a couple hours so far in the 40 Days for Life campaign in Madison. People pray and stand vigil 24 hours a day for 40 days outside of a Planned Parenthood facility in an effort to end abortion. There are actually 238 locations worldwide that take part in the 40 Days for Life campaign, and our family definitely believes it is a worthwhile cause.

Damien has been an enthusiastic participant and was very excited to help out with the signs.
