We have two young sisters (ages 9 and 11) in our parish who have never been baptized. The parents left the decision up to them. Mercifully, we were able to convince the father to enroll the two girls in Religious Education. Both have now expressed a desire to be baptized into the Catholic Church. Their reception will be scheduled sometime in the month of January. Praise be to God!

I remember your mentioning the sisters before.

Thanks be to God indeed that they are to be baptized.

How parents expect children to make a decision when they haven't given them any information is a mystery to me!

**. Both have now expressed a desire to be baptized into the Catholic Church.**

Glory be to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
