(Would everyone stand)
Members of the Parish of Mordialloc/Parkdale, will you renew the vows made by the Church whenever a child is received in baptism?
All With God's help, we will live

upholding one another in prayer, and encouraging one another in service.

Chairman Would the parents of the KUCA children please stand. Parents, you have the opportunity to guide your children to a real faith in Jesus Christ. In the their baptismal vows, parents promise to set before their children the example of a Christian life, to pray they will learn the way of Christ, to encourage their children to grow within the fellowship of the church so they may come to faith in Christ. The Church's Christian education program aims to reinforce and extend the teaching of the home. Will you support the KUCA and Youth programs by your interest and cooperation?
Parents With God's help we will give priority to the Christian education of our children. We will encourage the children to attend as regularly as possible; we will cooperate in their learning.
