Year 1 and Year 2 went to church this week to learn about a Baptism service. Father Rose talked to us about the people who are at a Baptism service; the priest, the baby, the parents, the Godparents, the family and sometimes the parish family. He then explained why we make the sign of the cross on the baby’s forehead and why the baby wears white . Father explained what the priest says when he pours the water over the baby’s head and then told us about the blessing with the Chrism oil and Baptism oil. Finally Father Rose showed us the Baptism book and the children were very excited to discover that many of their names were in the book too!
