Alyssa Williams Baptised!
Fr Raphael Thomas baptises Alyssa Williams, the younger daughter of Southern Cross columnist Keenan Williams (right), at St Ninian’s church in Kuils River, Cape Town. Holding Alyssa is mother Nicolette.
“It was a different kind of initiation into the Church as we had to adapt to a new normal of having a maximum of ten of us present, including the priest and godparents,” said Mr Williams. “But the intimacy reminded me of the stories of old where Christians would meet in secret to praise and to worship and be received into the Church.
The times where the Church was stripped of its pomp and circumstance and that true intimacy of the relationship and faith with Christ was initiated and ingrained in the hearts of the faithful.”
