Great news!!!

On Sunday, July 13, Donna Naples became the newest member of St. Matthew the Evangelist Parish, after she was Confirmed and received her First Eucharist!!

Donna was in the RCIA process for more than a year, where she learned about Jesus, Scripture, Prayer and other aspects of our Catholic Faith. She was scheduled to receive her Sacraments at the Easter Vigil, but, of course, COVID-19 had other ideas.

Her husband Richard was her Sponsor, and she chose the Confirmation name Maria Goretti. We wish her God’s blessings as she continues her journey with the Lord!

Many thanks to the RCIA team, Cindy, Connie, Dan, Colin, Jim and Pauline, as well as the sponsors and families who support our candidates/catechumens on their journey!

Here are a few photos from Donna’s Sacraments.
