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
    • Certificate of attendance of the pre-baptismal class, to be taken at any Catholic parish (via Zoom or in-person).
      • Self-Guided 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.
