Hastings youth initiated into Catholic Church at Easter Vigil

The Catholic Spirit followed Dylan Heiman during his journey through the Triduum. He became interested in the Catholic faith through contact with the parish NET Ministries team. Team co-leader Dan Driver was his godparent/sponsor. Read the original story about Heiman’s spiritual journey, which appeared in mid April.


Dylan Heiman, 18, of Hastings experiences full immersion baptism at the Easter Vigil Mass at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Hastings April 23 as he completes his journey toward becoming Catholic. He was among some 643 people in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis who joined the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. Performing the baptism was Father James Perkl, pastor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. Assisting was Father Allan Paul Eilen, associate pastor.

Father Perkl anoints Heiman in the sacrament of confirmation. Heiman also received first Communion at the vigil.
