Larissa and her Catholic husband, Andrew, moved to Tulsa over a year ago. Their first child, Lizette, was born here and baptized at St. Bernard's. Baptized in the Baptist church, Larissa's experience in RCIA was an important part of major changes going on in her life and contributed to a decision to choose a new direction in her career. She has energetically embraced the Catholic faith. Now she and Andrew are expecting their second child.
Robby Dias was born and raised in Bangladesh, which is only 1% Christian. Baptized in the Baptist church, Robby came to the United States on a student visa to study at Northeastern State in Tahlequah. His father became Catholic a month before he passed away in 2019. Robby now has a Master's Degree in Criminal Justice and is hoping to become a permanent resident of the United States.
Bobbi Cook was born in North Dakota and raised in the Lutheran Church. Her husband, Mike, was Catholic, but they were not regular church goers for several years. After moving to Tulsa, Mike developed a renewed interest in his Catholic faith and began to study Catholic teachings, practices and history, which he shared with Bobbi. Mike, Bobbi and their five children also began attending Mass at St. Bernard's. Bobbi says their family's life took on an increased richness as they integrated the Catholic faith into their lifestyle. Unfortunately, the Cooks will be moving soon to Edmond, the new site of Mike's employment.

"Then Jesus approached and said to them,
'All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.'"
