Class 1 – Baptism

Today we had the chance to go to the Church to hold our very own baptism.

When we arrived at the church we were greeted by Father Michael who explained what a baptism was, one child said “It’s when God is with us.”

Then, Father Michael talked about all the things that happen throughout a baptism and the things that he uses including the special oils he uses on the baby’s head.

Next, we watched as Father Michael performed a baptism. First, the parents and God parents had to agree to look after the baby and help her throughout her Christian life.

Next, the parents had to hold the baby at the font while the water was blessed before it was carefully poured on the baby’s head three times. There were lots of prayers said and finally the candle was lit.

We learnt so much about baptisms and really enjoyed having our very own Baptism.
