Secondly everyone must say the baptismal promise if the persons being baptized is too young their parents say it on their behalf. The priest then anoints the person forehead with oil to symbolize strengthening for the problems ahead of life. After each person comes up to a bowl of holy water in which the priest will pour water over the person head to wash away all sins and also to symbolise life because without water there will be no life in this world.. More promises are made and a candle is lit while the person being baptized wears a white garment as being clothed in Christ.
