Guidelines for Baptism Rites

Requirements

  • Bring Original and photocopy of child's Birth Certificate;

  • Marriage Contract of parents (if married)

  • In case of the child is above 3 years of Age;                      (3 Certificate of No Records of Baptism is needed;                                contact the Parish Office for details)


Fees

  • Php 200 (both parents)

  • Php 50 per sponsor

  • Php 30 Baptismal Certificate (request can be made one                                                               week after Baptism)

 

Other Reminders

  • BOTH parents must be present during the celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism.

  • Parents who want their child baptized should be married in the Catholic church.  If parents want their child to grow in the Catholic faith, then they should live this faith and follow the discipline of the Catholic church. What faith are they imparting to their child if they themselves are not married in the Catholic church?

  • The celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism is a communal celebration.  To show the communitarian dimension of the sacrament, we do not have individual baptism except for serious reasons (medical, cases of emergency, security, etc.)  Convenience is not a serious reason.  If you want your child to be a member of our parish, then please allow the parish community to be present and welcome your child when he/she is baptized.  Baptism then becomes more meaningful and more people will pray for your child.

  • Proper church decorum is strictly enforced.  Ladies and gentlemen are expected to dress properly and decently for church.  Ladies wearing dresses with plunging/revealing necklines, backless attires, or short skirts and men wearing sandos and shorts will not be allowed to enter the church.

  • Sponsors must be Catholics who have received the sacraments of Christian initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.  Most importantly, sponsors must be willing to undertake the responsibility of partnership with the parents in the upbringing of the child into a mature and committed Christian.
