Grade 3 Arnold Assembly

The first Assembly of the year was presented by Grade 3 Arnold. It related Jesus’ baptism by his cousin, St. John the Baptist.


The boys explained that although Jesus had no need to be baptiSed, because after all He is the son of God, He wanted to use the occasion to start His public life. He also wanted to teach us that baptism is important for us all to become members of the Family of the Church.
