The sacrament of Baptism marks a person’s admission into God’s
Holy Universal Church.
In baptism you receive God as your heavenly father: you can pray
Our Father, who art in Heaven…;
you receive Jesus Christ as saviour: when Christ died on the cross
and was resurrected, He took away also your sins;
you receive the Holy Spirit who will guide you through your life;
and you receive God’s promise of life eternal with Him.

Pictures can also be taken from the choir loft but the light

Please remind your photographers that they, too, are attending
a church service.
