Year 2 have been learning about the symbols of Baptism. Last week we looked specifically at the anointing with Chrism oil. We know that this we when the child receives the Holy Spirit. The child is now holy and is a friend of Jesus. The Holy Spirit will help and guide the child throughout his or her life to make wise decisions, be courageous, be honest, be kind and helpful and to be patient.
In class we used some oil to anoint our friends. We said the words of the priest ” …… receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
We know that the Holy Spirit helps and guides us throughout our lives.
