Neil Jessup, a parishioner of our Good Shepherd Catholic Parish, was received into the Catholic Church on March 13, 2018 at the church of the Nativity  in Bethlehem, where after

his Profession of Faith,  was Confirmed and  received first Eucharist - a few feet from the place of our Lord’s birth.   Joan Jessup, Neil’s wife, was his sponsor. 

The celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation was presided by Father Cesar Solorio, under special authority and letter from Bishop Armando Ochoa and in coordination with the Franciscans in the Holy Land, representing the Patriarch of Jerusalem, the local Ordinary.
