The baptism of Christ is recalled by a Scripture excerpt about his baptism, followed by another passage about his Great Commission to his disciples to “go and baptise throughout whole world.”
On the wall opposite are four quotes of St Augustine of Hippo (356 – 430 AD) from his book, Confessions, which has been called his spiritual autobiography. These quotes reveal Augustine’s intent upon living out his baptism for the rest of his life. The display features graphic art etched on metal panels and art reproductions which tell of the baptism of St Augustine. The dimensions of the Baptism Reflection Area are six metres by three metres.
The idea of providing this reflection area first arose over three years ago during the term in office of the previous Principal, Mr Dennis Harvey, but was not fully implemented until August 2018 partly because of building renovations in the vicinity. The present Principal, Mr Mark Stower, was pleased to complete the project.
