P. 5

You are precious in my sight... and I love you Isaiah 43:4
1. Welcome
The mystery of life and love
On behalf of the Catholic community of our Diocese, we welcome you to this Infant Baptism Preparation.
It is always a joy to engage with parents who have recently brought a child into the world.
The creation of new life is truly a miracle.
You have been part of this miracle, in each moment of its unfolding. For nine months you nurtured this child’s life and prepared a place in your home for a new member of your family.
This gift is life-changing. Even now your child is shaping the world, making their presence known, demanding a response... most especially from you as parents.
So our first words to you are: warm congratulations! And thank you.
Thank you for saying ‘yes’ to God’s creative love in your lives.
Thank you for courageously entering into the journey of parenthood.
And thank you for bringing your child to be baptised. We are happy to be with you in this journey of faith.
