Baptism and Confirmation

Baptism in Christ. review what we talked about last week. Chapter 6 pp. 78, 80-81

Review: Baptism in our Church:


We visit the Baptismal Font in the Sanctuary
The Pascal candle and the Sacramental Chrism oils are store in the Ambry—
(the special glass cabinet on the wall).


Holy Water (Symbol of the Holy Spirit)is kept on the left and poured over the catechumenate (person to be baptized) into the basin on the right. The center drain leads right to the ground so the holy water will not be dumped into the septic. The baptized person receives a Candle–“Receive the Light of Christ” and puts on a White Garment–“Putting on Christ”

Confirmation in the Spirit. Our Baptismal vows are strengthened. Chapter 10 pp.120-124

Tour the church

We said a special prayer for our loved ones, and lit a candle for them.  We saw the Stations of the Cross, the Tabernacle,the Sanctuary Lamp, the Baptismal Font and the Holy Oils: (Oil of Catechumens which is used to bless and strengthen those preparing for baptism; the Oil of the Sick with which the priest brings Jesus’ strength and healing to those who are joined with the suffering Christ in serious illness; and the Sacred Chrism which is used in celebrating the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Orders)  We looked behind the sanctuary at the vesting room, at the altar stone under the altar cloth and inside the confessionals.
