The Baptism of a child is a significant moment in the life of a Christian family. Parents are expected to participate in a Baptismal Preparation session that helps them to better integrate the new birth and the change this initiates in family life into their spiritual lives. Because infant Baptism relies upon the parents’ commitment of faith, the Baptismal preparation is geared to stirring up the faith of parents so that they can celebrate the Baptism of their child with joy and a mature awareness of what is expected of them as Christian parents. Sessions are designed to welcome both first time parents and those expected 2nd, 3rd, or 4th babies. Married couples are trained to facilitate these sessions with parents.
