Parents baptizing their child at your parish should come away from the experience with their faith deepened, confident in the knowledge that the Church and your parish are their home, a place where they belong.
The new Belonging Session Guide offers those preparing parents for their child’s baptism a simple, beautiful resource that presents what Catholic life will look like for their child and their family.
It is organized in four parts:
- The Meaning of Baptism - Here, parents will discover a clear and compelling answer to the most fundamental question they are asking, “Why am I having my child Baptized?”
- The Rite of Baptism - In this section, parents are given the details of the Baptism rite (the symbols, the materials used, the parts of the rite) so they can approach the sacrament confidently.
- The Role of Parents and Godparents - What are you promising as the parent of the child being baptized? What obligations are you taking on when you agree to be a child’s godparent? All these questions and more are addressed in this section.
- Raising a Young Catholic - Where do you go from here? Now that your child has been baptized in the Catholic Church, and you have promised to raise them in the Faith, how do you go about that? This section provides practical advice and guidance on how to create a Catholic culture in your home.
