Hi. I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Silvia. DH and I were both raised Catholic, although I wouldn't say either of our families were church regulars :-) We attended church together while we were dating and after we got married, although neither one of us had completed our faith formation. That all changed in 2006, when our daughter was born. Eleven days after her birth, we met with the faith formation coordinator and told her that we were both ready to complete our sacraments of initiation. That next year was a busy one. In 2007, we had our marriage validated in the church, I was confirmed, our daughter was baptized, and my husband went through the RCIA process. I have since become involved in a ministry that prepares children with disabilities for their First Communion. I am also an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion and this past year I sponsored someone through the RCIA process. We are expecting our 2nd child any day now and I've had to cut back on ministries for a few months. But to say that our faith is central in our lives right now is an understatement.
I look forward to getting to know all of you.
