Baptism


This actually took place last Sunday, July the 6th.

Sue and Skip had their baby boy baptized in a pretty Catholic church over in Rigaud, QC. The name of the church escapes me at the moment, but I’ll correct that later. Hard to believe Benjamin is 3 month’s now

It was a short ceremony, about half an hour. Surprising for Catholics. They usually like the whole lengthy and inane ceremonies. It was given in only English too, another surprise out here in la Belle Province.

Apparently the priest no longer dips the whole baby into a bowl of holy water, instead tracing the cross across the forehead. I’m assuming that they got tired of being peed on during the child’s protest.
