Caitlyn's Blessing

Following Caitlyn's dedication by her grandad in England, we had an informal blessing service for her also in Ireland - this time done by her aunt Kerry (and cousin Penny). The service included a couple of songs that are special to Marcus and Jane, a reminder of what Caitlyn was like at just one week old, the blessing ceremony that had everyone participate, a book of 'pure' (Caitlyn) and 'beautiful' (Aoife) things, and a beautiful moment where Kerry took Caitlyn around to each person so they could give their own words of blessing. All very lovely indeed.

Thanks to (Great) Uncle Harry for taking a few photos.
