This silver medal is approx 16mm and would look best on a medium weight chain.
The first of the seven sacraments (Baptism, Reconciliation, First Communion, Confirmation, Holy Matrimony, Holy Orders and Anointing of the Sick), Baptism is considered the most important. Through Baptism a person (usually a child), is accepted into the Church for the first time. Both the parents and two chosen Godparents vow to help the person lead a holy life dedicated to God. Baptism takes place throughout the year.
