Hope for Lancashire baptisms following christening of Prince George
10:58am Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
THE Bishop of Blackburn Julian Henderson has expressed hope that the christening of Prince George will encourage more Lancashire families to baptise their babies.
Before he performed the ceremony at Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, said he hoped the ‘extraordinary’ event would inspire others to do the same.
The Rt Rev Henderson said: “I would join with the Archbishop of Canterbury in hoping that this event will inspire families in Lancashire to think carefully about having their children baptised into the Christian faith, joining two billion members in the family of the church worldwide.”
