    We've recently learned that our catechumen class will enter the Church on Lazarus Saturday. Those who've been baptized as infants or adults in Protestant churches (in our case, Methodist, Episcopalian, and Anabaptist) will be given conditional baptism, and the one who had never been baptized before will be baptized, then we all will be chrismated and partake of our first Eucharist.

    This means that we'll have two anniversaries: whenever Lazarus Saturday falls in any given year, and April 15, giving us at least one good thing to associate with that day each year! [​IMG]

    My buddy Chris J. married his high-school sweetheart last year, and they're expecting their first child in April.

    I think it's safe to say that Chrismated.


    :D
