a) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for our Sunday Holy Mass celebration.
This Sunday we commemorate the Baptism of the Lord. This event reminds us of the starting point of Christ’s public ministry when God the Father anointing the Son with the power of the Holy Spirit introduced Him to the world as the Lord and Savior.
We profess in this Holy Mass our faith in Christ and ask Him to strengthen us who were baptized in His Name with His living Word and Body and Blood which give us true and eternal life.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.

The Lord God is faithful in fulfilling His promises to His people by giving them free gifts of happy and everlasting life which surpasses human expectations.
b) Second 1 Jn 5:1-9
