Pontifical Baptism in the Extraordinary Form Photos

The following photos are from our recent Pontifical Baptism in the Extraordinary Form. The celebrant was Bishop Francis Reiss, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit. This is the first time that a bishop has celebrated Baptism according to the Old Rite since the liturgical reforms.
