On Wednesday, November 1, at our weekly 6pm Liturgy, our longtime friend and fellow resister, Fr. Chris Ponnet, baptized former community members Alecia Stuchlik and Eddie Pilolla’s two children, Hazel and Jesse. It was a joyous occasion with community members Jesse and Martha Lewis as witnesses/godparents.

Lower right is Alecia singing a song she wrote dedicated to their children. It was an honor to have Ed and Alecia decide to have their children baptized at the LACW. Our prayer is for Hazel and Jesse to grow in God’s love and be guided by the Spirit throughout their lives.
