Show & Tell Friday: Sophia's Baptismal Certificate


It's Show & Tell Friday again! Today, I wanted to share with you my daughter's baptismal certificate. Of course, this isn't the official one that goes to the church offices. It's one that my mother had specially engraved and framed for her. It hangs next to her crib and changing table, a daily reminder as she grows that she is called to live into the grace bestowed on her in that holy sacrament. I look forward to having another one made for our son, who is due in May.

  2. In the last picture, I think it reads "Christian Reformed." What is that? Is it the formal name for "Protestant" from the Reformation?

  3. It's a good idea to frame and save it. It will become even more precious over time. Thanks for sharing. Happy S&T Day.

  5. A- Christian Reformed is a denomination, similar to Presbyterianism. My husband, who is Protestant, and I stumbled upon this church that we like very much, although we are not Christian Reformed (or Presbyterian, for that matter). However, our son will be baptized Catholic, as I am now practicing in the RCC again.

  6. How absolutely beautiful! And a great reminder to me that I haven't yet framed my daughters Cradle Roll certificate from her Baptism! I trust that all is going well with your little one, and your bump :)
