Saint Michael the Archangel Regional School provides Pre-K through Grade 8 education through a faith-centered curriculum steeped in strong Catholic values with an emphasis on simplicity, prayer, and service. Through a family-oriented environment, our students develop intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually in preparation for higher education, a culturally-diverse society, and becoming contributors to the community-at-large.
One element of our baptismal ceremony for babies and children who have not yet reached the age of reason (7 years-old) is clothing those being baptized with a white garment. The words accompanying this gesture include: “You have become a new creation and have clothed yourself in Christ ... May this be a sign to you of your Christian dignity.” The Rite goes on to suggest that “it is desirable that the family itself provide the garment” (Order of Baptism for Children). May families have a tradition of using the same baptismal dress for their children – some families even pass this down through several generations and so the baptismal dress becomes a cherished family heirloom. It then symbolizes a double identity: a member of this particular family who share a common blood bond as well as a member of the family of God, of Christ’s Body, who share a Life bond in the Holy Spirit. Baptism, then, is about who we become through our new relationship with God and with each other.
