INFANT BAPTISM AT HOLY TRINITY PARISH TAWAU

Article by Julita and photos by 
John Wong, SOCCOM Tawau
Tawau : Fr Johnny Raju, the assistant parish priest of Holy Trinity Church administered the Sacrament of Baptism to 23 infants on Sunday, 11th October 2015 2.30 pm.
Prior to the Sacrament of Baptism, Sr Anita Philip fsic facilitated a catechesis session on the responsibility of parents and godparents a week before on 4th October.
In his reflection, Fr. Johnny reminded all parents and godparents on their responsibilities towards their children. He said, 'Parents are the first herald in the family for them to know God. Parents and godparents are to impart the knowledge of the faith as teachers and models in the home. Neglecting this responsibility will definitely cause children to waver in faith  in their future life. Teach your children in the earlier age about how to pray, and make them know and experience the church environment from small. This will help them to understand the dignity and respect towards their faith in their process of growing up.'
Nothing and no one can replace the influence of the example of a parent on the spiritual life of a child. They are the hope that the child will be brought up in the Catholic Faith. The parents and the family members were indeed grateful for this wonderful moment in their journey of faith together with their children.

The rite of infant baptism ended at 3.30 pm with a photo taking session with Fr. Johnny Raju.
