Baptism welcome

RE Desmond Albrow's dislike of' baptism being incorporated into the mass (November 1). How wrong I feel he is. The new rite shows us that the parish is a community and that this new member is being welcomed with joy.

Maybe I am fortunate in my parish size, but certainly we like to meet and welcome the newly baptised. This cannot happen in a 'private" service, following which, especially 1 imagine in a large parish, someone could remain unknown and unwelcomed for some time.

However, I do agree with him about the clapping! The liturgy contains the welcome.
