The Sacrament of Baptism

After the water has been blessed through prayer, the minister would conduct the baptism by sprinkling some water and placing a sign of the Cross (*) on the person’s forehead, saying the following:

‘A’ I baptise you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  AMEN

‘A’ I sign you with the Cross*, the sign of Christ.  AMEN

(*) We see the Cross as an important symbolin our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ,

A blessing is offered over the candidate, taken from the Old Testament(Numbers 6:24-26) which binds us together with all God’s faithful people in this life and the next.

May the LORD bless you and keep you;

the LORD make his face to shine upon you,and be gracious to you;

the LORD lift up his countenance upon you,and give you peace.
