Baptism or Christening ?
There is a subtle difference between the words ‘baptism’ and ‘christening’
Christening refers to the naming ceremony (to christen means to give a name to) where as baptism is one of seven sacraments in the Catholic Church. Babies are baptised to welcome them to the family of the Church. In the ceremony water is sprinkled on the baby’s head as a symbol of new life and of being washed clean from sin. Parents and godparents promise to bring the baby up in the Christian faith following the example of Jesus Christ.
