A Journey of Faith
The North Aisle.
St Patricks Well.
This stone was found in 1901 over the remains of an ancient well, which up to the late sixteenth century was in constant use. It is believed that this well might be the same as that used by St Patrick to baptise his converts.
Why did St Patrick baptise his converts?
It was because he knew that baptism had been an integral part of Christianity from the beginning. Jesus himself was baptised by John in the River Jordan at the beginning of his ministry on Earth. The earliest converts to Christianity were baptised. In the Acts of the Apostles Chapter 2 verses 38-41 we hear Peter call to those around him, Repent and be baptised, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ. Baptism was then and is now an expression of repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. For those who accept Jesus as their Saviour and friend, baptism is an expression of that new beginning.
Have you been baptised?
Perhaps you were baptised as an infant.
Do you know the promises that were made for you?
