Baptism Registration

  • MM slash DD slash YYYY
    CHURCH LAW requires that a candidate for Baptism/Membership in the Church community be sponsored by a fully initiated Catholic (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) who leads a life of faith consistent with the function being assumed. The sponsor must be at least sixteen (16) years of age. There is to be only one male sponsor or one female sponsor or one of each. The godparent should have the aptitude and intention of carrying out the function of helping the child grow and develop in the Catholic Faith. A “Christian Witness,” that is, a baptized non-Catholic in good standing, is permitted at baptism as long as he or she witnesses the baptism along with the godparent who fulfills the requirements listed above. The sponsor may not be the father or mother of the one baptized. Parents are required to fulfill the parish program concerning the preparation for Baptism.
