With great joy we announce the birth of Chloë Malzahn to Vanessa and the Rev. Martin Malzahn on November 9, 2023.
The Rev. Martin Malzahn is clergy-in-charge at St. Paul and Incarnation, Jersey City. He writes, "Mother and daughter are healthy, happy, and resting comfortably. Big brother Noah is proud. Dad is smiling with gratitude for answered prayers."
Warm welcome and blessings from your diocesan family, Chloë!
O God, you have taught us through your blessed Son that whoever receives a little child in the name of Christ receives Christ himself: We give thanks for the blessing you have bestowed upon the Malzahn family in giving them Chloë to be their daughter and sister. Confirm their joy by a lively sense of your presence with them, and give them calm strength and patient wisdom as they seek to bring this child to love all that is true and noble, just and pure, lovable and gracious, excellent and admirable, following the example of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
