OBV welcomes a child with open arms and with little attention to their religious background. The the founder and the staff are predominantly catholic, only a third of the children who walk through our doors are born Catholic.
For community integration, the children participate in activities organized by the local parish, however, are given the choice to study and convert to Catholicism. In fact, 6 children made the choice to receive their First Communion two years ago, and 2 of them continued on to receive their Confirmation today.
On this day, not only did the two children receive the blessing and grace from God, they also received a small celebration from their families and from OBV. It was a day filled with love and positive attention.
By receiving the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, may you live your lives to be filled with grace from God.
