Welcome Home

Welcome home to all those received into the Catholic Church this weekend.

Prayer for New Catholics

Dear Lord,
our brothers and sisters have begun their lives anew,
baptized and anointed as members of your Church.
Grant that the grace they have obtained through the
Easter sacraments we have celebrated will strengthen
them in their journey to you. May our joy be everlasting
at their homecoming! May their dedication to their new-
found family with you as their Father mirror the dedication
and vigor held by the saints such as Paul, Augustine, Mary
of Egypt and Edith Stein, who where always faithful
members of your body.

The story that everyone is talking about:
Pope baptizes prominent Muslim
Vatican City — Italy’s most prominent Muslim commentator converted to Catholicism by being baptized by the pope at an Easter vigil, the Vatican announced Saturday.

Please be sure to stop by and welcome Kelly, Erik and Stephen home to the Catholic Church.

Arkansas Catholic has a great story about one family's journey to the Catholic Faith.

New Faith Pulls Hot Springs Family Together
HOT SPRINGS -- Danny Morrison just wanted to find a place where he could worship God. This simple yet overwhelming desire put him on a road that eventually led to the Catholic Church. But he is not alone. His wife Mary, stepson, Steve, and two step-grandchildren will enter the Church with him at the Easter Vigil Mass at St. John the Baptist Church in Hot Springs. His daughter-in-law, Kristy, is also returning to the faith after being away for nearly 15 years.
