Baptism Requirements

Parents:

  • We do NOT need proof of Sacraments for the parents.
  • If the parents are both Catholic, the only documentation we require for them is the following:
    • The Baptism Registration Form (linked)
    • Certificate of attendance of the pre-baptismal class, to be taken in person.
      • Online Baptism preparation courses are not currently accepted.
      • In the very rare case that classes are not offered at your church, or at any neighboring parish by you, you can have a one-on-one with a priest, deacon or chaplain.
    • If not registered at COTLF, a permission letter from their parish, allowing them to baptize outside of their church.

Godparents (All documents required for each Godparent):

  • Proof of Confirmation (the certificate can be a copy of the original)
  • If married, certificate of Catholic marriage.
  • Certificate of attendance of the pre-baptismal class, to be taken in person.
    • Online Baptism preparation courses are not currently accepted.
    • In the very rare case that classes are not offered at your church, or at any neighboring parish by you, you can have a one-on-one with a priest, deacon or chaplain.
  • A Sponsorship Letter from their parish.
    • This letter informs us they are active registered parishioners, live a life of faith and partake in the catholic community.

If Godparents are unable to locate or obtain certificates or Confirmation and/or Marriage, they can alternately sign the “Life in Harmony with the Faith” document at the Parish Office.

Baptism date cannot be scheduled/reserved, until all documentation mentioned above is turned in at the time of scheduling.
