St. Mary's Abbey Prior Edward Seton Fittin '82 reports that on Sunday, February 21 John Hager ‘23 and Hayden Kim ‘22 were enrolled by Paterson’s Bishop Kevin Sweeney during a Rite of Election as they begin their final journey to Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil  in the Abbey Church.

The two Delbarton students began by signing the Book of the Elect in the St. Martin Oratory. They have been under the mentorship of Theology teachers Mr. Matthew White and Dr. David Hajduk, who are their baptismal sponsors.
