Level I – Baptism
The Baptism Corner
Whether your atrium is rectangular, L shaped, or another configuration, it is important that the Baptism materials are placed together in a particular area. In their writings, Sofia and Gianna refer to this dedicated area for Baptism, as the Baptism “corner”. There are three free standing pieces: the font, the Paschal candle and lectern with Bible that are proportionate to each other. The Risen Christ may be mounted and free standing or hung on the wall.
The Baptism Corner Materials
Small individual candles
Shell (for the water)
Holy Bible (with stand)
- Two small chests where small candles and the white garment are kept. Other supplies are also stored there.
- A lectern (or if your area is smaller, a book stand) for the Gospel
- A designated space for the Font, the Gospel and the Paschal Candle to remain
- Space for work and prayer
