More confirmation pics

Here are some more pictures, courtesy of my sister-in-law, Julie. She sat in the back of the church and was able to get these shots while I was still making my way out of the church. While the Bishop prohibited photography during the ceremony, he was willing to pose with each newly confirmed.

That's Bishop DiMarzio. If you couldn't tell by the big hat, he's a big deal. Here's a really nice shot of the church's facade.
She even managed to sneak a shot of Logan processing into the pew.
I just love this picture of my big boy.
Here is my mother-in-law, Emma, and her 2 grandsons.
Caterina made confirmation on Saturday as well, just at a different church. She and her mom stopped by the restaurant where we were having dinner. She looked very pretty and very grown up.
Mom and son.
Thanks, Julie, for the great pics.
And thanks for looking, bloggers.

Confirmation. Finally!

Well, it's official. Logan has been confirmed into the Catholic Faith. This past Saturday's ceremony was the culmination of 9 years of religious instruction which began with formal classes every Sunday when he was just 5 years old. It was a lovely day for a lovely ceremony but the Bishop prohibited any photography so we don't have any pictures of it.

Here are Maddy, Jim and Logan prior to entering the church. Maddy is my cousin. As you can see by the lack of coats, it was a really nice day for late October. In fact, by the shine on Jim's forehead, you can even surmize that it was very warm. This is immediately after the ceremony outside the church. It was about 6:30 p.m. and dark by this time, as you can see from the pictures.
Here are Kenny, (my uncle who was Logan's sponsor), Karen, (my lifelong friend and Logan's Godmother), and us, of course.

Maddy and Kenny, again.
Here we are at our favorite Spanish restaurant. They make the most amazing sangria and paella.
We had a crowd of 13 people for dinner at the restaurant. Here you can see our friend, Leo, and Jim's nephew, Sam, sitting next to Logan.And finally, Logan's Grandfather, Spiro, who even came to the church. Shocking! Amazing what grandparents will do for their grandchildren.

My sister-in-law, Julie, took some more pics. I'm going to download them from flickr and post them here later.

Thanks for stopping by!
