Jennifer Hughes attended RCIA sessions two years ago but it wasn’t until this year’s Easter Vigil that she received her Initiation Sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Jennifer grew up in the Nashville area and church was a large part of her life. During history classes, in school, she was introduced to the Catholic Church from a historical perspective. As she matured, the desire for more in her spiritual life grew. Through continued reading and a little help from Google, Jennifer found St. Joseph Church and entered our RCIA process to continue her faith journey. Jennifer and her husband, Chad, have 5 children and 2 grandchildren. She is a stay at home mom and home schools the three younger children, who also attend St. Joseph Religious Ed on Sunday mornings. In her spare time, Jennifer continues to enjoy reading and to coach her daughter’s softball team. Mary Lou Spurlock is Jennifer’s godparent and sponsor.
Reagan Marquez is the newest member of this year’s RCIA class. He was baptized in the Catholic faith as a young child in Micronesia. He came to the U.S. 13 years ago with his wife. They have 5 children, 4 daughters and 1 son, who attend St. Joseph Religious Ed on Sunday mornings. His wife, Jayleen and oldest daughter, LaTonya entered the RCIA process last fall to complete their initiation sacraments. At the urging of his wife and daughter and after adjusting his work schedule, Reagan was able to join in this year’s RCIA class so that they could enter into full communion in the Catholic Church as a family. Reagan is a cook by profession and he enjoys spending his spare time playing with his children. Basketball is his sport. He enjoys the NBA and is a fan of the San Antonio Spurs. Reagan is accompanied on his faith journey by his sponsor, Al Fleck.
