I claim you for Jesus Christ, with the sign of his cross and invite your parents and godparents to do the same.

We listen to the  Readings and respond in song.

Baptism Celebration

11:30 Mass on June 12, 2011

Father Michael Wimsatt and Deacon Dick Walsh

What name do you give your child?



Raise the Gospel over the earth.



Here I am Lord!

Send your Holy Spirit and bless the water in this font.

What name do you give this child?

What do you ask of the church for this child?

Are you ready to bring this child up in the faith?

With this cross I claim you for Jesus Christ!

I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.





Dick Walsh

You are now clothed in this white garment.    Bring it unstained into eternal life.

Keep this light of faith burning until you meet the Lord face to face!

May your ears be opened to hear God’s Word and your lips be opened to speak God’s Word!

“God the Father, through his Son, the Virgin Mary’s child, has brought joy to all Christian mothers, as they see the hope of eternal life shine on their children.  May God bless the mother of this child.  She now thanks God for the gift of her child.  May she be one with her child in thanking God for ever in heaven, in Christ Jesus our Lord.”


Anointing with sacred chrism

I baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit!

Receive the Light of Christ!
