Eight years ago today...

Collin and I were confirmed into the Catholic Church. Deo gratias!

The Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis, MN, our home church.
We lived within walking distance of this gorgeous building.

We were confirmed at a Thursday noon daily mass. Originally, we'd been scheduled to be confirmed on Pentecost Sunday (June 1) with the rest of our RCIA class, but we ended up having to schedule our move to North Dakota for that weekend, so we requested permission to be confirmed earlier. The priest was very accommodating. :) We were confirmed and then went out to lunch with our sponsors. It was a wonderful day!

Eight years later, we still feel so incredibly grateful that God led us to home to Rome.


  1. Oh, wow! What a gorgeous sight! And, the Church is so blessed to have you and your beautiful family!

  2. Happy Confirmation Day! It must have been so special doing it together. Beautiful picture too!


  3. Congratulations!! What a great day to commemorate!

  4. Happy anniversary of coming home! And a beautiful home church, by the way.


Please be respectful and courteous, and I will reciprocate.
