Baptism for Children ages 7 - 17
Children and youth over the age of 7 who have had little religious education are required to

youth. Through this process they are introduced to the teachings of the Catholic Faith,
basic Catholic prayers, and the sacramental life of the Church. At the end of the two year
process, they are baptized, confirmed and receive their first holy communion.
Baptism for Adults
Please see the section below on the RCIA.
As a Godparent, your role is to be an example to the godchild. You are called to reflect with
