Baptism

INFANT BAPTISM

The Sacrament of Baptism is the gateway to all the sacraments. It is the responsibility of parents and godparents to model their faith by word and example, to help the newly baptized infant’s faith development and growth towards Christian maturity.

Prerequisites for Infant Baptism:

The child has not celebrated his/her seventh birthday, at least one parent/guardian should be a practicing, active Catholic, and the parents/guardians and godparents attend an appropriate amount of adult sessions to help them deepen their own faith and understanding of Baptism.
