BAPTISM INVITATION CARD
— WITH A CUSTOMISED PERSONAL TOUCH FOR YOU —
Baptism Invitation Card is for this ceremony. It is a Christian ceremony in which a person has water poured on their head, or is covered for a very short time in water, in order to show that that person has become a member of the Christian Church.
Even though the words baptism and christening are used interchangeably, there is a subtle difference. 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. In the sacrament of Baptism the baby’s name is used and mentioned, however it is the rite of claiming the child for Christ and his Church that is celebrated. Baptism represents a deliberate act of identification with the person of Jesus Christ and his Church. This decision implies a personal relationship with Jesus that requires nurturing through such things as worship, prayer, Bible study and other spiritual disciplines.
First Holy Communion Invitation Card
The Eucharist also known as Holy Communion and the Lord’s Supper among other names, is a Christian rite that is considered a sacrament in most churches, and as an ordinance in others. According to the New Testament, the rite was instituted by Jesus Christ during the Last Supper; giving his disciples bread and wine during a Passover meal, he commanded them to “do this in memory of me” while referring to the bread as “my body” and the cup of wine as “the blood of my covenant, which is poured out for many”.
The elements of the Eucharist, bread (leavened or unleavened) and wine (or non-alcoholic grape juice), are consecrated on an altar or a communion table and consumed thereafter, usually on Sundays. Communicants, those who consume the elements, may speak of “receiving the Eucharist” as well as “celebrating the Eucharist”. Christians generally recognize a special presence of Christ in this rite, though they differ about exactly how, where, and when Christ is present.
