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.

Thanks to Orla Roche for sending on this pic of St Mary's yesterday, with a rainbow in the background. The Rainbow is mentioned in the Bible as a sign of God's promise! "I set my rainbow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the Covenant between me and the earth!" Genesis 9:13.

It's like a beautiful connection between heaven and earth 🌈, and this connection is fully realised in Jesus, who came to be the bridge between heaven and earth and so when we celebrate the Mass🍞🍷🕍, our connection with God in heaven is renewed, strengthened and made ever more real for us! Amen! ... See MoreSee Less
