Tristan was welcomed into the Christian community today as he was baptized by Msgr. Thomas Gilleece at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in NY City.
Even though Tristan was christened at the cavernous cathedral, only a small number of family and friends were able to attend. The ceremony took place in the relatively small “sacresty chapel” under the main altar.
Good friends Patty and “Skull” graciously accepted responsibilty for Tristan’s immortal soul. We hope they know what they have gotten themselves into! (Jen and Tom are certain he is in good hands).
Afterwards, the family celebrated Tristan’s big day at “Tuscan Square”, a wonderful Italian restaurant near the cathedral in Rockefeller Center.
Next week, the rest of Tristan’s extended family will gather in Tappan to welcome him into the community.
