As part of the Welcome theme, Deacon Housbey came to visit Nursery and talk about baptism. We dressed up as parents, God parents and the priest. We used a doll for the baby. The morning children's baby was named Michael and the afternoon Nursery named their baby Lottie.
Deacon Housbey explained that baptism is a welcoming into the church, God’s family. He showed us how to make the sign of the cross on the baby’s head and pour water over too, using a shell. The cross reminds us of Jesus and the shell reminds us of our journey of faith as God’s family. The children looked for shells and crosses in the room and on their uniform. Deacon Housbey showed us a baptismal candle, which reminds us that Jesus is the light of the world. We said a prayer together thanking God for his love.
