On Pentecost Sunday we welcomed Angelica and Francielle Perez into the family of God. Though we are always members of God’s love, baptism is an important way to officially join a faith community. Angelica and Francielle’s discovery of God’s love for them, and his return of that love, culminated in their baptism on the Day of Pentecost.  It was beautiful and awe inspiring (as baptism always is) but it was particularly special for our families to witness Angelica and Francielle, whom are so dear to us, taking that step. We thank the St. Stephen’s family for the warmness and affection of this welcome. Angelica and Francielle have newfound grace and direction and hope God continues to do good works through them always!
