Becoming a member of the RC Church by three times anointing with water in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We have two separate routes of preparation:
1) Adult Baptism with preparation beginning in September. Adult Baptism takes place at the Easter Vigil, during the Easter vigil.
2) Infant Baptism, where two evenings of preparation are attended by parents, in addition to participation in the life of the parish community in one of the church districts.
The birth of a child is a unique event. It awakens in many parents such a sense of gratitude that they want God's blessing for their child's future. Baptism is the first sacrament; the person to be baptized is "washed" with baptismal water and anointed with consecrated oil.
We would like to work with you to ensure that proper preparation precedes baptism.
The celebration of baptism can be held in your preferred church. It is important to register early. For this reason, two evenings are held each month for all parents together.
The first evening
is devoted to getting acquainted, where the question
can also be briefly discussed around the motivation why one wants to
have one's child baptized. Then the evening continues on the baptismal liturgy,
in the celebration of baptism a lot happens, because everything that is done
and every prayer has a meaning. Thus, in a simple way
the meaning of baptism, but even more of being baptized
is made clear.
The second evening
How to act in parenting and especially in the context of
the personal life of faith? On the basis of a number of questions, the conversation is initiated interactively
It is not to stimulate parents to pay (more) attention to their personal faith life, to develop it further and let it grow. This
has a direct impact on parenting.
Dates and times of baptismal preparation
The preparation evenings take place in the Pastoral Center, St. George Avenue 51 and begin
at 8:00 pm. Preparation evenings are held every month. See the calendar for dates.
