Welcoming Ceremony

April 7, 2019 11:30 am to 12:30 pm

The Welcoming Ceremony

The welcoming ceremony is part of the celebration of baptism in the community.  It is intended to be a way of introducing the children to the Christian community to which they will belong and become a part of, as they grow in their faith.

The welcoming ceremony will take place as part of the Sunday Mass on the 2nd Sunday of the month before the month of Baptism of the child. For example, if your child’s Baptism ceremony is in July then you will take part in the Welcoming Ceremony on the 2nd Sunday of June. It will take place within the 11:30am Mass in Holy Rosary Church.

In April due to Palm Sunday being on the second Sunday, this ceremony will take place on April 7th.

The first stage of baptism will be celebrated at this Mass.  You will present your child to the community to be welcomed and your child will also be anointed on the heart at this time. Please note that the Godparents of your child and other family members are very welcome to come to this ceremony.
