1 St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church Holy Baptism Appointment We welcome you and your family to St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, as you present your child to God their Father in the Sacrament of Baptism. We rejoice with you as you welcome a new life into the world, and in a short time, into the Catholic Church. Baptism is the foundation of all the sacraments and the most important day of your child s life. Baptism is the beginning of your child s journey to their Heavenly Father, and during this time of preparation we hope to aid you in giving your child the support and guidance they will need to live a life in Christ. From the earliest times it has been the practice of the Church to administer the sacrament of Baptism to infants. Parents very naturally want to hand on to their child their own faith and the values that flow from their faith. Baptism marks the beginning of this new life in faith. Pope John Paul 11 calls the family the Domestic Church, the Christian home where the child begins to experience life as part of a community of families called the Church. At Baptism you the parents, and godparents, along with the whole Christian community, take upon yourselves an important responsibility. You each promise to make the Church and the world a place that will offer the newly baptized child the love and support needed to grow to full Christian adulthood.

2 St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church Godparents: Godparents play a very important role in your child's spiritual life and should serve as role models in the Catholic Faith. Godparents should support not only the child but also you, the parents, as you raise your child in the faith. In their role as godparent, they represent the larger Church community; hence, being a godparent is not only an honor, but a tremendous responsibility. Because of the promises godparents will make at your child s baptism, they should be carefully chosen. In recognizing the importance of the godparents and their duties, the Church has provided the following guidelines to help parents choose the best possible godparents for their children: A child must have one practicing Roman Catholic godparent in good standing with the Church. This Catholic godparent must be at least 16 years old and be mature enough to understand, accept and carry out the duties of a godparent. A godparent must have received the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. A godparent must be living an exemplary life consistent with the faith and morals as taught by the Roman Catholic Church. A godparent must be actively practicing his or her faith by attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days, and if married, must be validly married in the Catholic Church. A non-catholic, baptized Christian may be chosen as a Christian Witness, as long as one godparent is a practicing Catholic. If two godparents are chosen, they may not be of the same gender. There may be no more than two godparents. Requirements: A copy of the child s State Certificate of Live Birth or a copy of the Sealed Hospital Certificate of Live Birth Baptismal Certificate from each godparent with the appropriate notations on the back and sealed from the church where they were Baptized Completion of our In Home Baptismal Preparation Class which takes place after completion of this packet.
