  • Baptism - Christ The Redeemer Roman Catholic Parish of Swift Current
    the date of the Baptism The Church emphasizes the role of parents as the first and best teachers of their child in the ways of the faith and Christian values During the Baptism the parents of the child promise to do their best to raise their child in the practice of the faith Obviously the parents should manifest their faith by participating in the weekly Sunday Eucharist with the faith community into which their child is to be incorporated We look for an honest and wholehearted commitment on the part of the parents It is never our intention to deny Baptism to anyone However there may be circumstances that would lead us to suggest the postponement of the Baptism until the parents are ready to carry out the promises they must make at the Baptism ceremony Your child will only be baptized into the Catholic Church if there is a reasonable expectation that you the parents will raise the children in the Church Knowingly living in an invalid marriage not married in the church and knowingly defying the Catholic Church for the purpose of convenience shows a lack of faith and creates a real concern that the child will not be raised Catholic Canon 868 1 States that for an infant to be baptized licitly a The parents or at least one of them or the person who legitimately takes their place must consent b There must be a founded hope that the infant will be brought up in the Catholic religion if such hope is altogether lacking the baptism is to be delayed according to the prescripts of particular law after the parents have been advised about the reason if you are choosing not to live as a Catholic why will you want your child baptized as a Catholic How can you do that if you ve rejected the faith Baptism is not simply an act of initiation or a blessing It s not just a tradition It s a very holy and sacred thing meant for believers Canon law requires a well founded hope that the children will be raised Catholic Baptism initiates the baptized person into the Catholic community Hence it is most appropriate to celebrate Baptism at a time when the community is together which is when we come together to celebrate Eucharist If you regularly go to church and intend to raise the child Catholic there is no canonical or legal impediment to baptizing your child but if you are not canonically married in the church for the sake of your own soul and so you may receive the awesome gift of the true Body and Blood of Christ worthily we encourage you to get your marriage regularized Before a child will be baptized the parents must complete the process of preparing for the Baptism a date and time will be fixed for the Sacrament Since the Baptism is celebrated within the context of the weekend Mass it is essential that each family arrive well
