Baptism & Christening

We Annoint You with the Oil of Salvation

My cousin and his fiancée celebrated the baptism and christening of their infant daughter last Sunday at Saint Thomas More University Parish. She was a little over a week old. The Reverend James A. Goins presided over the sacrament. For her saint’s name, the parents chose “Colette,” after the foundress of the Colettine Poor Clares, a.k.a. the Poor Clares.

About the Featured Photograph(s)


M-mount lenses do not provide aperture information to the camera body, either electronically or mechanically. Therefore, f-stop settings are approximate, and are probably wildly inaccurate. For what it’s worth, I usually shoot with my lenses wide open.
