Joyfully, together with their families, we welcome our newly baptized parishioners.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
Noah’s ark is seen as a prefiguring of salvation by Baptism, for by it a few were saved through water. When the Jews fled Egypt by the parting of the waters, Israel was liberated from the slavery of Pharaoh. In Baptism we are freed from the tyranny of sin and Satan by the waters of holy Baptism.
