Come and See
We are thinking about some special symbols and their importance in the celebration of Baptism. When someone opens the door for you it means welcome. The open door of the church is a symbol of welcome for the baby. The priest says some words of welcome and makes the Sign of the Cross on the baby. He asks the parents what name they give their child, (use the pictures from Church’s Story 2 pages 33-34) and makes the Sign of the Cross on the baby’s head and invites the parents and godparents to do the same. Godparents support the parents, as they bring up their child, in the ways of Jesus.
