"Dear parents and godparents: Your family has experienced great joy at the birth of your child, and the Church shares your happiness.” —Order of Baptism of Children (OBC), “Rite of Receiving the Child”

With these words the minister may greet those present at the rite of Baptism of a child.

This second edition of the order of baptism will guide your community’s celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism for children and infants. It has been updated to be consistent with the current translation of the Roman Missal. The second edition gives the option to use the new greeting cited above and an expanded Litany of the Saints. It also has a helpful new appendix laying out the order of baptism of children within Mass.

The updated second edition is necessary for bishops, priests, and deacons who are the ordinary ministers of baptism. This ritual for Baptism may be used as of February 2, 2020, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, and must be used for all baptisms of children beginning on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020. It is approved for use in the dioceses of the United States. Gold foil stamp on front, back and spine. Red, blue and gold marker ribbons, Text for proclamation in large easy-to-read print. Red bonded leather hardcover, 7.25 x 10.5, 188 pages. (
