Finnegan's First Communion and Confirmation, March 30th 2013

Finnegan completed two rites of passage in the Catholic Church last week. He received his first communion and was confirmed. His sponsor was my long-time friend since 1989, Helen Brocker. Jennifer, Finn's mother, two of his friends from school and I attended to watch this go down. The entire mass was combined with an Easter Vigil and a few baptisms as well. It lasted over 2.5 hours. I neither made the baptismal font boil nor attracted lightning from the clear, cold sky.
