Baptismal Font

The location of the font signifies that entrance into the life of the church is through the waters of baptism. Created from “mystery white” marble, the font is tall enough for a personal blessing or for baptism by immersion for adults and large enough to imply the great mystery of baptism. The inscription reads:

“WHEN YOU PASS THROUGH THE WATERS, I WILL BE WITH YOU, AND THROUGH THE RIVERS, THEY SHALL NOT OVERWHELM YOU” Isaiah 43:2

 

The unbaptized person descends into the waters as if into the grave with Christ, and, once baptized, rises on three steps towards the altar of life, as Christ rose on the third day.
