Welcoming New Maronites to the Catholic Church

Cody Shidell and Angela Chan received all three Mysteries of Initiation (baptism, chrismation and eucharist) on Saturday May 30th at Our Lady of Purgatory, New Bedford celebrated during the vigil Liturgy by Father Jack Morrison, pastor. 

Both candidates were regular attendees at Mother of Light Convent, receiving their catechetical formation and preparation from Mother Marla Marie.  Cody said the weekly classes “helped me to have a deeper understanding of the faith and have helped me to get closer to God with a life full of prayer”. Angela added,  “the classes led me spiritually, and Mother Marla was there to guide me mentally and spiritually through the process.”
