Today, Year 2 went to church for a talk with Father Rose about Baptism.
Father Rose talked about the things that happen during a baptism service and what these symbolise. These included; chrism oil, white robe, holy water, baptismal candle and the sign of the cross.
We then talked about the people who attend a Baptism service and what their roles are; priest, parents, baby, Godparents and the congregation.
Father Rose talked to us about very early Baptisms and he then told us the story about John the Baptist baptising Jesus.
