Thanks to all for your kind words.

My children are: 12, 10, 6, 4 and 7 months. First four boys and now a girl.

I am blessed.

I love it when people show up with 5 or 9 children. 

Is there a first name or something to put on prayer list, or the name of who will be someone's patron saint?  (There's a bunch of us who are #1Sinner, and I'd rather not refer to someone else that way  :) )

I was touched to see an entire family received into the church on Holy Saturday 2006.  When I entered the church, I saw a large tub in the middle of the church.  I had never seen a baptism on Holy Saturday never mind the baptism of adults.  I was moved to tears.   :'(

Congratulations and enjoy the rest of Lent.   :)

I'm guessing the practice of receiving converts isn't uniform and depends on one's background. We are coming from a traditionalist Roman Catholic background. My wife, oldest son and I are being received by confession of faith and anointing on the forehead. My younger children will all be Chrismated.

Glory to You, Lord.

He makes all things new (Rev 21:5), including entire families.

Great news. Welcome home!
