I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
As we were building this website we started to consider that in these days of Social Media it may be a good idea to enable the posting of pictures taken at your child’s baptism either on our FaceBook Page or here on our website.
After much thought and consideration we have come to the conclusion that offering that facility may not be the best thing to do and that what we should be doing is highlighting some of the possible consequences of the posting of pictures of children on Social Media.
“Uploading photos and videos onto social media services and websites can be a great way to share memorable moments with friends and family, or to boost engagement with your community.
But there can be risks associated with posting photos and videos of children online.”
Here in the UK the Council for Child Internet Safety works to help keep children safe online.
We hope that this page will assist parents in considering what is best for their children.
