PLEASE WELCOME OUR RCIA CANDIDATES…..
My name is Christopher (Chris) Clodfelter. I am married to Kimberly Clodfelter. We have two children, Zane Clodfelter and Rae Marissa Zirkelbach, son in law Warren Zirkelbach, and our grandson Barrett Zirkelbach. We are excited to meet our second grandbaby the first week of May. I made the decision to join the Catholic Churchon Easter of 2021. Our family attended an Easter Vigil the night before and I felt at peace and felt the Holy Spirit in the church. I have been blessed to know great people that live their lives as with the Catholic faith and many continue to support and encourage me. I would like to honor my in laws, Richard and Bette Zeller that raised Kimberly in the Catholic faith. I am also thankful for my late parents and the conversations I had with my father weeks before his death. We discussed my wish to become Catholic. He fully supported my decision because he knew it would make me happy. We both had concerns with the messages we were hearing from our denomination. I have learned so much in RCIA classes that have strengthened my faith. I was looking for a deeper understanding of God and found it in the Catholic Church.
My name is Holly Tharp Fehn. I am married to Josh Fehn and we have one son, Pike. I moved to Evansville in 2010 to attend the University of Southern Indiana and never left. I have chosen to join the Catholic faith so that our home is unified in faith to raise our family. My husband Josh was raised Catholic and attended Good Shepherd School himself. Our son Pike was baptized by Father Zach this past fall and will be attending Little Rams Preschool for the 2022-2023 school year. We are so excited to be a part of the Good Shepherd community.
My name is Jason Lyons, and I work at SS&C as a Software Quality Analyst. I initially chose the Catholic faith because I wanted a closer connection to my girlfriend, Kelly Wolfe, and her daughter, Ellison Wolfe, as they are both active Parishioners. During RCIA, I discovered that I was learning more about myself as I was learning about the Catholic faith. Meeting and connecting with like-minded people has been an amazing experience.
My name is Sharon Dwanyen Mhango. I am married to Solomon Dwanyen Mhango. We have four children: Madelyn (16), Solomon (10), Nehemiah (6), and Dehlu (3). I am primarily a stay-at-home mom, but also work as an Academic Coordinator for a cultural exchange program for high school students. I enjoy reading, cross-stitching, figure skating, and spending quality time with my family. I am becoming Catholic because I want to receive Jesus in the Eucharist and experience communion with Christ more deeply.
We pray for our new members and congratulate them. God bless you all.
