Celebrating Christian Baptism

Baptism_fresco
Congratulations & Welcome!

“In the waters of the Jordan
You revealed with signs and wonders a new Baptism,
so that through the voice that came down from heaven
we might come to believe in your Word dwelling among us,
and by the Spirit’s descending in the likeness of a dove
we might know that Christ your Servant
has been anointed with the oil of gladness
and sent to bring the good news to the poor.

Preface from the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated in our parish on The Lord’s Day. A pre-baptismal meeting is held on Wednesday nights at 8:00pm in St Anne’s Resource Centre. We invite couples to register for the course by calling to the parish office with the candidate’s birth certificate, prior to attending.

In the case of adults or children under seven years of age who wish to be enrolled in the pre-baptism catechesis, we invite you to make contact with one of the parish clergy after any Sunday Mass

Due to large numbers, the Baptism Course is limited to eight couples each Wednesday night. Parents and godparents may apply to have their children baptised at these meetings.

In the days, months and years after baptism, the cousins, uncles, aunts and grandparents are invited to assist the parents and godchildren in helping the newly baptised to grow in faith.

This is a valuable opportunity for Confirmation candidates to help their younger siblings to learn their prayers – especially the Sign of the Cross and the Lord’s Prayer.

Today we are celebrating
• Divine Mercy Sunday,
• Thomas Sunday
• Quasimodo Sunday

Every blessing for today's Feastday as we continue to walk with the Risen Jesus who helps his disciples to profess their faith.

The Quasimodo connection is from the antiphon of today which was sung to the newly-baptised "Like newborn infants, you must long for the pure, spiritual milk, that in him you may grow to salvation, alleluia." - the text which is being sung in Victor Hugo's novel about Notre Dame de Paris. ...
