Sawyer Cullen Williams, the son of Derek and Alicia Williams of Crozet, was the first child to be baptized in the Crozet Catholic Mission, whose mother church is Holy Comforter Catholic Church of Charlottesville. In the Catholic Church, a person’s sacramental records are held throughout his or her lifetime by the parish in which he is baptized. A new record book is now opened for Crozet. Holy Comforter pastor Fr. Joseph Mary Lukyamuzi performed the rite May 14, Mother’s Day.
At its next Mass, May 28, the congregation celebrated children who had received their first communion or confirmation. These children got their religious instruction in another parish last year, but Christian formation classes will start in Crozet in the fall.
