Baptism day

We didn't have the little ones baptised as infants, for many reasons too boring to get into here.

The kids attend a Catholic school though, and learning about Catholicism in religion class, and watching their classmates receive sacrements, they began to express a desire to be baptised themselves. We started preparing in August, and today was their big day. It was low key, 6 kids in total who for whatever reason found themselves in situations similar to ours. And it was beautiful. Afterwards the deacon rang the church bells to announce the occasion to the community.

I'm glad it happened this way. I think the kids will be more aware and more appreciative of the church having made the decision to join themselves.
