Thousands in Atlanta to join the Catholic Church

More than 2,000 women and men declared their intention to join the Catholic Church at Easter. The annual celebration to welcome them into the church was held on Sunday, Feb. 14, at the Cobb Galleria.


  1. "The voice of the Father has whispered to their hearts"

  2. "They remind us that God’s fidelity and truth still guide the Church. They confirm the presence of God’s Spirit in the life of the Church. They enrich the very life of the Church in the Archdiocese of Atlanta," said Atlanta Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory.
  3. "Gladly do we choose, elect, and welcome you, my dear friends, to join us in the family of faith. We recognize how fortunate we are to have you as the living signs of God’s fidelity to His church," said the archbishop. "We all give thanks to God the Father through Christ because of his goodness made visible in each of you this day."
