- WATERMEAD STORY This was the first sacrament card that Watermead produced – the actual baby pictured is a relative of someone in the community. The wording inside the card from the hymn, 'O Child', offer the ideals we would wish for every child, picturing the seasons of life as reflected through the seasons of the year. BAPTISM (Christening) is initiation into the Christian community - the life of Christ symbolised through the gift of water, the supreme sign of life. THE SACRAMENTS The Christian journey is marked by special moments of God’s blessing called Sacraments. There are seven: Baptism (Christening), Confirmation (or Chrismation), the Eucharist (Holy Communion), Penance (Confession/Reconciliation), the Anointing of the Sick (formerly termed Last Rites), Holy Orders (Priesthood and Religious life) and Matrimony (Marriage) - linking the stages of human life with the stages of the spiritual life.
