Oleander received her final sacrament of initiation last night. It was a beautiful ceremony. She chose an obscure but wonderful Korean martyr saint, Peter Yu Tae Ch'ol, as her patron. Oleander is a lovely girl and absolutely loves her faith. She was so excited for this day and did us all proud by being one of only eight confirmandi that volunteered to answer catechism questions posed by Bishop Holley.

Oleander's godfather was able to make the trek from Colorado Springs to see her initiation fulfilled. I love this photo of her with her godfather and sponsor. She has had some very devoted prayer warriors praying for her throughout her faith formation. Now, it's all up to her.
