Jacqueline with her family, Canon Foley, Sr. Eileen and Sponsor Marie after the Easter Vigil.

Welcoming our Newest Parishioner at St. Augustine’s

The celebration of the Easter Vigil at St. Augustine’s this year included the full liturgyenvisaged by the Church, with the Baptism and Confirmation of our newest parishioner Jacqueline. After an initial enquiry period, Jacqueline spent the last year studying the Catholic faith with the help of RCIA team and her own Sponsor Marie. It was great to see Jacqueline, after this long journey, finally received into full communion with the Church. It was not only a poignant moment for the parish when Jacqueline was baptised and confirmed, but also for her family and friends who had journeyed with her this past year. We wish Jacqueline every happiness as she begins this new chapter in her life as a full and active member of our parish community.  May the grace of the Holy Spirit which was poured out upon her that night strengthen her in her Christian vocation and may the Risen Lord remain with her always.
