In celebration of a new season of rebirth and growth, seven students from SS. Cyril & Methodius School received the sacrament of baptism on March 23 at SS. Cyril & Methodius Church.

“This is a joyous day for these youngsters and their families as they enter their journey of faith in our Catholic community,” said Father Hurbanczuk.

SS. Cyril & Methodius School is encouraging families to reconnect with their Catholic faith in an effort to combine what the students are learning in school with living their faith at home with their families.

“I am excited these families are renewing their faith through the sacrament of baptism. These students are now on the path to receiving the sacraments of reconciliation, holy Communion and confirmation as they continue their faith formation here at Saints Cyril & Methodius School,” said principal Joy Chlus.
