Baptism is full of symbols. Things to remind us about something important
Water – Did you know that in the first baptisms people were dipped fully in water. Now we just pour it over a baby’s head. Water is poured three times over your head – to remind us of the three days Jesus was in the tomb! Water is also a reminder of new life.
While Shawl – Babies wear a white shawl to remind us that you are a new creation – a fresh start in the company of God.
Holy Oil – This Oil is blessed by the Bishop for all the churches in the Diocese. Chrism Oil is used when we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Cross – The Sign of the Cross is made on our heads reminding us that we are now part of the family of Jesus.
Candle – Our parents and godparents get a lighted candle to show the light of Jesus in our world. It is given to them to be kept safe for you!
Saints – We all are trying to be a saint. Be kind to others that’s a good start!!
