There are two rites of Baptism:
1. The Rite of Baptism for Children is used exclusively for children under the age of reason (seven years or Grade 2).
2. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, (adapted for children) is used for everyone over the age of reason (eight years…).
Parents are the primary teachers of faith to their children. Parents take a Baptism Preparation Course prior to their child’s baptism. At their child’s Baptism, parents promise to raise their child in the Catholic faith.
