We are delighted to share the joyous news of our recent infant baptism ceremony. Baptism is a beautiful and significant sacrament in our faith, symbolizing the entry of an individual into the Christian community. It represents a new beginning, a spiritual rebirth, and a profound connection to God's love and grace. Through baptism, we celebrate the promise of a life guided by faith, hope, and the teachings of Christ.
We welcome this little one with open arms and hearts, embracing her in the warmth of our community's love and support.
