Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

During our Sunday Mass, on the feast of the Baptism of the Lord (13 January 2019), we invited families that had a baby baptised during the previous year to bring the baby for a blessing.

We also presented each child with an image of the Guardian Angel and a prayer.

We pray that the Lord will be close to the children and their families as they share many key moments in their lives.
