At left is Johnson’s sponsor, David Hueller. There were seven candidates — those who have been baptized and are seeking full communion with the Church — from the Cathedral parish and six from the University of St. Thomas. During the Mass, the archbishop baptized four elect from the Cathedral parish and two from the University of St. Thomas. Archbishop Nienstedt said during his homily, “The message of this Easter night is one of great hope. Hope for the catechumen and the candidate. Hope for the sinner. Hope for the archbishop, the priest, the deacon, the religious, the laity. Hope, indeed, for the world. For he is risen, and we have become ambassadors of this great message.” Dianne Towalski /The Catholic Spirit
