Conferral of Rites

Since we had the boys baptized in the hospital, we took them to the church for Conferral of Rites. They were anointed with chrism (holy oil), received their baptismal candles and were welcomed as members of the church. We were thrilled to share the big day with so many of our friends and neighbors who have helped us with the boys.

I'm still reveling in the smell of chrism on their little heads. Here are photos from the big day. Enjoy!

Thanks for the video clip- I remember when Amelia was the baby and we all blessed her and put the holy oil on her head, too! Isaac - sleepy baby- or does he just shut his eyes when he is stuck in the middle?? Love you guys!

Love these pictures! The boys look like they're enjoying the attention and the outing. What fantastic personalities your kiddos have!
