Congratulations to our Year 7 girls who received the Sacrament of Baptism last weekend at St Joseph’s parish, Takapuna:
Thank you to our Chaplain, Fr Mark Napa, who led a beautiful liturgy, especially for our Carmel girls and their families.
As part of the Rite of Baptism, each girl was anointed with the oil of Catechumens and the oil of Chrism. They were baptised with Holy water, received a stole as their ‘white garment’ and had their candle lit from the Paschal candle.
Thank you to Miss Emmanuel who prepared the girls. Our newly baptised girls are now preparing to receive First Communion and Confirmation with more of their Year 7 peers.
Congratulations on taking the first step in Catholic initiation – welcome to the worldwide Catholic family!
