Bl. John’s was received into the Church on the Feast of S. Thomas: Tuesday, July 3, 2012! Twelve of our thirty-eight members were confirmed and Fr. Bartus was ordained to the priesthood as well! Two news articles can be found here and here. And here is Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson’s homily.

Photos, taken by Fr. John Moneypenny, should be arriving in short order, but for now, here are a couple taken by friends:
