Leo's Baptism

We had a very difficult time setting up a time and place for Leo to be baptized since the priest at our new parish of St. Jude was having surgery and was unable to perform his baptism. The deacons at the parish do perform baptisms on certain weekends, but we were having a hard time finding a weekend that worked with Paul's travel schedule. Paul had an idea to ask Archbishop Aquila, who is the newly installed Bishop of the Archdiocese of Denver, but was the Bishop of the Fargo Diocese while we were in high school and college, to do Leo's baptism. He said yes and we picked a date!!!

Leo was baptized on September 16, 2012 at the Church of St Jude by Archbishop Samuel Aquila. It was a beautiful ceremony with his Godparents Bryan Wilburn and Kimberly Lammers as well as several members of our family and friends in attendance.
