Quinn Sophia Fischer, 3 months old, was baptized by Father John Boeglin at Holy Family Catholic Church in Jasper along with QuinnÕs twin sister, Lyla Beth, on June 30. The twins are the children of Nicholas and April (Blankenberger) Fischer of Jasper, who were both raised Catholic. Their 2-year-old daughter, Kate, also was baptized at Holy Family by Father Boeglin. The water used in baptism is meant to symbolize the washing away of original sin. The person being baptized is then anointed with a sacred chrism, which signifies the conveyance of the Holy Spirit onto that person, is given a white garment and has a baptismal candle lit. During the baptism, Quinn was surrounded by her godmother, Pam Bolte of Indianapolis, left, April, LylaÕs godmother, Abbie Fischer of Huntingburg, who was holding Lyla, and LylaÕs godfather, Matt Auffart of Ferdinand.
