1 Sacred Heart Catholic Church Foothill Blvd., Rancho Cucamonga, CA (909) ext. 286 Fax (909) Dear Parents, Welcome to the Baptismal Program at Sacred Heart Congratulations for seeking to have your child baptized. The Sacrament of Baptism marks a very important point in the spiritual life of your child and of the Church. Through this first Sacrament of Initiation, your child is welcomed into the community of God s family. Because it is so significant, and to meet the requirements of Canon Law, the following Parish policy has been established for the Baptism of children who have not reached the age of reason, usually about seven years of age. Parents and godparents are required pre-baptism formation (Canon 851.2). In order to register for this formation, Please fill out the Baptismal Information form. When filling in the information, please print legibly as this information will be used for the Baptismal Record. Turn in the completed form, with a copy of your child s Birth Certificate (showing child s name, parent s names including mother s maiden name, date and place of birth), Have sponsor s forms signed and sealed. Turn in the godparent verification forms, (please have godparents answer all 4 questions on their part of the form) and a $50.00 Administrative Fee (covering pre-baptismal class costs, administrative fees, supplies, etc.; no other fees are required for Baptism) to the Parish Office by the deadline. Additionally, the Baptism date for your child will not be assigned until after parents and godparents have attended pre-baptism classes, we respectfully request that you not make plans for a particular date until then. As a reminder Canon sets as a rule that infants are to be baptized in the parish church proper to their parents (either living within the Parish boundaries or registered as members). If this is not the case, please request a letter of permission to baptize outside of the parish, particularly if it is not a parish of the Diocese of San Bernardino. Finally, Canon 872, 873, and 874 requires you to have at least one godparent (you may have two; one godmother and one godfather) who is at least sixteen years old; has received the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist; and leads a life in harmony with the faith and the role to be under taken (i.e. a practicing Catholic: regularly attending Mass; receiving the Sacraments; if married, married in the Church). Although other Christians may stand as witnesses to the Baptism, they are only Christian Witnesses, not godparents. Sincerely yours in Christ, Deacon Ed Clark All paperwork must be turned in at least one week before the day of the scheduled class.

2 Schedule for Baptismal Classes & Baptisms for 2016Revised It is a requirement for the parents and godparents to attend the baptismal class. The godparents can choose to take the baptismal class at their parish. Godparents attending Baptismal Class at another parish: We will need the original certification with seal, two weeks prior to the Baptism. The certification must indicate that the Baptismal Class has been taken. If parents or godparents have already taken a Baptismal Class: If the parents and/or the godparents have already taken the Baptismal class, proof (original sealed letter/certificate) must be provided with the package at time of registration. A baptismal class taken at Sacred Heart, Rancho Cucamonga is valid for 2 years. Baptismal Class Time: 7pm Location: St. John Paul II Hall Baptism Time: 10am Location: Church MONTH DATE OF CLASS REGISTRATION DEADLINE DATE OF BAPTISM January 1/11/16 1/4/16 1/30/16 February March April 4/11/16 4/4/16 4/30/16 May June 6/6/16 5/23/16 6/25/16 July 7/11/16 6/27/16 7/30/16 August 8/8/16 8/1/16 8/27/16 September 9/12/16 9/2/16 9/24/16 October 10/3/16 9/23/16 10/29/16 November 11/7/16 10/28/16 11/26/16 December Rev.3/4/2016

4 Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Rancho Cucamonga, CA ext 286 or Deacon Ed Clark. Godparent Form for Infant Baptism CHILD S NAME: First GODPARENT PLEASE FILL OUT THIS FORM COMPLETELY, TAKE IT TO YOUR PARISH OFFICE AND HAVE THE PARISH S SEAL IMPRINTED ON THE BOTTOM OF THIS FORM. PARENTS MUST RETURN IT TO THE PARISH OFFICE 1 WEEK BEFORE SCHEDULED BAPTISM CLASS. Dear Baptismal Sponsor: When a parent chooses you as a Baptismal Sponsor (godparent) that means you are thought of as a very special Catholic. Being called to be a godparent is not merely a choice because of family ties or a reward of friendship. The call to be a sponsor bears the responsibility of giving spiritual witness to your godchild of how to live out the Catholic faith in everyday life. By being faithful to God s law, being active in the life of the parish, participating in Mass weekly, and living Gospel values, you offer tremendous personal support to the parents who commit themselves in Baptism to faithfully passing on the Catholic faith to their child. Therefore, it is important that you prayerfully consider the serious responsibility, which you take on as a godparent. If you are unable to live up to these Catholic ideals, you may wish to decline this responsibility. Last The Canon Law of the Catholic Church offers these qualities of a valid sponsor (select all that apply): Must be mature enough to undertake this role, at least 16 years of age. Must not be the mother or father of the one to be baptized. The sponsor, with the parents, presents the child for the sacrament and helps him/her live a life befitting a baptized Catholic Christian. Must be fully initiated, having received the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist Must know the fundamental truths of the faith, be a practicing Catholic who attends Sunday Mass and receives the sacraments regularly, and sees to the religious instruction of his/her family. [This would indicate that Catholics living in an invalid marriage (not according to Church regulations) and those who are cohabiting (living together without marriage) are ineligible.] *** I affirm that I am a baptized and confirmed Catholic, living my Catholic faith and in good standing with the Catholic Church. I understand that I am called to serve as a companion, guide, and role model to my godchild especially by my own example and witness. Godparent Name: Address: CERTIFICATION FROM GODPARENT S HOME PARISH NOTE TO PRIEST/DEACON OR CHURCH REPRESENTATIVE: Please mark a Yes or No for the below statements. Do not leave any line blank. This is to certify that (godparent Name) is in good standing in this parish and that s/he meets the requirements for being a godparent. is registered in our parish as a practicing Catholic. lives in the territorial boundaries of this parish, but is not a registered parishioner.
