SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION EVENT COMING UP!
Sunday, November 1
St. Thomas Aquinas Church
Our Baptismal Celebration – or “Explanation Baptism” is for all children in the Sacramental Preparation Program and their families. It will be held on Sunday, November 1 beginning at 12:15 with Deacon Kasprzak presiding.
As the Rite of Baptism is celebrated our children will have the opportunity to participate in special ways as we welcome new Christians into our parish family and God’s family. Deacon Kasprzak and Annie Kitching will offer explanations of some of the aspects of the rite as we go along.
This celebration is a supplement to the children’s study of baptism. Understanding baptism and our membership in God’s family is an important foundation for preparation for Reconciliation and Eucharist. Attendance at this celebration is not required, but it is certainly a very worthwhile addition to your child’s religion curriculum.
