This afternoon Fr. Kilgannon came into school to talk to the children about the Sacrament of Baptism. The children found out what happens at Baptism and how we are welcomed into the church. Fr Kilgannon explained about the main components of Baptism – water, candle, white garment and the oils. In the following weeks we will be finding out about the role of parents and godparents in helping the baby follow Jesus and belong to the Church family. It would be lovely if you can look at your child’s Baptism pictures and talk about the celebration with them. If you can send in a picture I will add it to the display and we can share it with the class.
