We Believe and Celebrate Baptism


This well-organized resource is designed for the priest, deacon, Parish Catechetical Leader, or pastoral leader who guides the parents and godparents in preparing for the Baptism of their child or godchild.

Prepare for and enrich the celebration of a child’s Baptism with this book and keepsake. Parents, godparents, and the family will learn more about the meaning of the sacrament, reflect on excerpts from Scripture and Church documents, and find immediate preparation resources. The book is divided into four sections and provides a one or two session format:

  • Welcome to We Believe & Celebrate Baptism offers an explanation of the Baptism of infants and young children and the role that parents and godparents play in the child’s ongoing growth in faith.
  • Exploring the Rite of Baptism provides a description of the Rite of Baptism, so the family will be ready to fully participate on the day of the Baptism.
  • The Story of Baptism offers a short history of the celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism, beginning with Jesus’ words to his first disciples and continuing to the child’s invitation to discipleship.
  • A Baptism Keepsake is a tear-out keepsake for recording reflections about this special time. It becomes a treasured gift to the child or godchild that will support his or her growth in faith.
