Congratulations on the birth of your new baby.
Baptism is a great gift to give to your child. It welcomes him or her into the parish faith community founded on Christ’s love for us all. It is with great joy that all are invited into the family of the Mayobridge Parish community through baptism.
Your baby’s baptism is a time for celebration and joy. Naturally you want the best for your baby, and we want to help you to plan and prepare for your child’s baptism in the best possible way.
As you help your baby grow up in the love of God, you too will experience growth in your own faith life. Your baby’s baptism is only the beginning of a new life which will grow closer to one another in the family and closer to God.
Think of the love that the Father has lavished on us, by letting us be called God’s children; and that is what we are. My dear people, we are already the children of God, but what we are to be in the future has not yet been revealed; all we know is, that when it is revealed we shall be like him because we shall see him as he really is.
