My first born is due in August, and the Sacrament of Baptism will be in the Tridentine form. I tracked down a copy of the service, and it is lovely.

They are also wearing red beanies as headcoverings. In fact, it is the exact same outfit I wore at my own Confirmation...oh...let's see...about 35 years ago.<BR/><BR/>They stopped having the girls wear the beanies not too long after that. The practice of covering heads pretty much disappeared, so I'm not surprised you haven't seen it. <BR/><BR/>Also, I'm not sure the beanie was a universal thing; I know of other ladies, older than I, (but not from NYC like me) who tell me they did not wear them, but wore white veils or flat red ribbons in their hair instead. <BR/><BR/>EVERY girl of my age, and from my area wore the beanie, or at least I never saw them wear anything else.<BR/><BR/>Regards,Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-26629182257753598822008-06-20T08:25:00.000-04:002008-06-20T08:25:00.000-04:00A wonderful event for all involved.
