Families should renew their baptismal vows every Easter in order to remind children of the significance of that holy day.

DIRECTIONS

Here, too, is the place to mention that the newly-blessed Easter water should be obtained from the parish church on Holy Saturday and piously used during the Easter season. And since Easter is traditionally the church's great baptismal day, if the children's baptismal candles have been received and kept, they might well be lighted and placed on the family table for the principal meal of the day. Then, too, all of the members can together renew their baptismal vows.
