Order of Service at a French Catholic Baptism

Order of Service

Today François arrived with the Order of Service.

This is all very new to me. I have been inside a catholic church let alone attended a Mass.

It all looks pretty straightforward. Then the bombshell.

Ҏicole, would you like to read the reading?

Whoa. My head was screaming “Just say NO”. Reading in a church in front of people you don’t know, in French. Just say NO.

François must have seen the horror on my face. If you don’t want to do it, I can ask Olivier, the godfather.

Yes please. Relief swept over me.

I wonder, will there be incense?

Please help us!
