Children up to the age of seven may be baptized at the parent's request.  At least one of the parents must be an active Catholic who is committed to raising their child in the Catholic faith.  Parents and godparents are required to attend a Baptism preparation class prior to the baptism.  Godparents must be practicing Catholics, at least 16 years old and must have celebrated the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation and if married, married in the Catholic Church.  If parents or godparents have attended other Baptism preparation classes within the past year, the decision for any additional preparation will be made on a case-by-case basis.
