    Two young African-American men whom I have been catechizing this past Spring semester in a nearby low-security prison have made the decision to receive baptism, confirmation, and Holy Eucharist in June from the Bishop of Steubenville, Daniel Conlon.

    I ask that prayers be offered for their continued conversion - that they fully embrace the Christian life into which they will be baptized: that they will continue to truly renounce Satan, embrace Christ and his cross, and be a light to their fellow inmates in this particular prison.

    Their lives have been very difficult (broken families, drug-dealing, abuse, etc.), and they have made that initial decision to embrace the healing/transforming power of the Gospel.

    Their names are Brian and Rick.

    Thank you

    Carson,

    Without betraying any confidences, I'd be very interested to hear about how these men chose to came home to the Church.

    They were invited to the weekly liturgy by fellow inmates, and after solid Bible-grounded catechesis from several students in the MA Theology/Catechetics program at Franciscan University, they have made the decision to become Christians.
