Little Bear entered the Holy Catholic Church this weekend through the waters of Baptism.
Our church actually began doing Baptisms during mass, which I love. I think that if you are going to join the Catholic community you ought to do it with the community (ie mass) not in some ceremony after everyone else has left. We were surrounded by our many loving friends who have become a second family to us. (We have an amazing family, but since we moved so far from them, we don't get to see them as much as we'd like.) Everyone came back to the house and we had about 40 people in our little house. It was great!
