Bishop Raymond Chappetto Welcomes Mother (Mary Jo) and Daughter (Jo Jo) into the Church

We had already planned Mary Jo and Jo Jo's Reception into the Church when Father Fred received a call from Bishop Chappetto asking if he might do one of the weekend masses at our parish.  As the Bishop explained to us at the 10:15 mass his family has a reunion every two years in various locations as they have family all over the country.  Part of the "tradition" is that they have mass with a local parish.  So how beautiful for all of us that these two events came together, a blessing for the Bishop and his family, a blessing for Mary Jo and Jo Jo and their family, and most of all for our parish.  As Father Fred said - it was providential.
