Baptismal Font

The water of Baptism cleans us of sin and makes us new.
At Baptism we become part of the Church.
We bless ourselves with the Sign of the Cross with

the water from the Baptismal Font.  
This reminds us of our baptism.

 

Paschal Candle and Baptismal Font

The Paschal candle is blessed at the Easter Vigil every year
and is used during Baptisms and Funerals.
It reminds us that Jesus is the Light of the World and 
through our Baptism we are called to share His light with the world.

Here is the altar, also called, “The Table of the Lord.”
