I just found this CD of pictures hiding under my bed--so sorry they haven't been shared until now!
Way back in January, Clare was baptized!! My brother Isaac and our niece Stephanie were asked to sponsor her, and both made the necessary preparations and subsequent trek to Central Texas to attend the rite at our home parish.
It was a cold but sunny day. But what was most beautiful, was sharing the blessed event with so many familiar faces. Karl's parents, sister (and her girls,) a special friend from our college days, and (of course) her godparents, turned out in grand form.
Clare was baptized by our newly ordained Associate pastor, Fr James--whose ordination Clare attended in utero :)
Thank you, Lord, for this beautiful Sacrament!
