Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio baptized 10 people at St. Leo’s Church, Corona, during the Easter Vigil service. He also confirmed 55.

Speaking in Spanish and English, Bishop DiMarzio told participants that Jesus’ Resurrection was not simply a symbolic or spiritual event, it was a real bodily experience, attested to by the witness of the Apostles and earliest disciples.

More than 1,200 entered into full communion with the Church in Brooklyn and Queens last weekend.
