Sacrament of Baptism
"Catechesis for Baptism is directed primarily to adults: that is, catechumens-including children who have reached the age of reason-as well as the parents and godparents of infants who are to be baptized. All those preparing for Baptism, including parents and godparents who are preparing for the Baptism of an infant or child, need the prayerful support and apostolic witness of the people of the local community of faith - the parish. This preparation is an especially important opportunity for the Church to encourage the parents and godparents of infants to reexamine the meaning of the Christian message in their own lives." (National Directory for Catechesis)
Parents and Godparents are required to attend the preparation classes. Preparation takes two months to complete - one session the first month, and two sessions the second month. We strongly suggest you attend these sessions early in your pregnancy to avoid any disappointment in choosing a Baptism date.
