Baby's First Mass


After attempting it yesterday, this evening the baby and I finally made it to (and through!) Mass for the first time since she was born. It really helped that it was at home! One of my brothers-in-law made a last minute decision to make a really quick trip, flying all the way across the country, to baptize his niece after all!

  15. Can I ask a couple of silly questions, does your brother in law bring his own unconsecrated hosts when he knows he will be doing a home Mass and does he also bring a Baptism certificate or do you have to go through your own priest for the official paperwork? I was just curious.

    1. Yes, Father did bring unconsecrated hosts with him for Mass. As for the baptism/certificate, all the paperwork (as well as permission for Father to perform the baptism here in our diocese/parish) is processed through our local parish and the baptism took place at our local church this morning. Our pastor has been great about allowing my brother-in-laws to baptize and/or give our children their First Holy Communions.

    1. It sure is! I wish we could see them more often. It had been 9 years since I had seen this brother-in-law, and ten years since he had visited our home! Way too long!

    1. Sorry I never responded to this! That veil was from Robin's Nest Lane. She had closed her Etsy shop and Website for a number of years, but it looks like it is back now: https://tidd.ly/2OdZsKe
