Rochester Baptism

On Saturday 20 April 2013 Father Raymond Thompson baptised Lola Pickering at Our Lady and Saint Francis, Rochester. Pictured are her parents, Lucie Pickering and Vincent Green, and Godparent Vicki Farrant. Also in the picture are Lola’s sisters Erin and Tilli.

Receive the sign of the cross, both upon thy forehead and also on thy heart…

…I baptise thee in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost

Pictured outside the chapel are the family and friends of Lola who filled the small building. Father Thompson later reflected that of the 17 children who were present and joyfully led the singing and the prayers, he had baptised nine of them!
