Three baptisms

On August 19 at St. Luke's, we welcomed three new members into the body of Christ through the sacrament of baptism, including a baby and his father. After the service, we had a wonderful reception in the Sprague Room with some wonderful "church-made" cake.

"Sustain them, O Lord, in your Holy Spirit. Give them an inquiring and discerning heart, the courage to will and to persevere, a spirit to know and to love you, and the gift of joy and wonder in all your works." (from the Book of Common Prayer p. 308)

sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism and
marked as Christ's own for ever.
