Baptism is a sacrament of faith, but faith must grow after baptism. Thus, the important roles of parents and godparents, who as believers are able and ready to help the newly baptised on the road of Christian life. Through Baptism we enter into a unique relationship with Jesus Christ, Saviour and Redeemer.

Parents, by following the gestures and words of this celebration through thoughtful reflection and attentive participation, renew the promise of their own baptismal faith. In a likewise manner, the Church celebrates each year at the Easter Vigil the renewal of our baptismal promises.

  • The Sign of the Cross on the child’s forehead: Christ claims this child for his own. 

  • Proclamation of the Word: enlightens us with the revealed truth of our existence by God and for God.

  • Anointed with oil of catechumen on the chest: for strength to reject evil. 

  • Profession of Faith: the commitment of parents to bring up their child in the faith.

  • Water: essential for life, the pouring of water (or immersion) three times while saying “In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”, signifies and actually brings about death to sin and entry into the life of the Most Holy Trinity. 

  • Anointed with the oil of chrism: signifies the gift by the Holy Spirit.

  • White garment and candle: symbolize the baptized has “put on Christ”, and are the “light of the world”.
