Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” 

(Matthew 28:19-20)


If your child is 7 years or older, he or she must attend Faith Formation classes for 2 years before being baptized. In the second year your child should be registered for RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation of Children).
The Catholic Church believes that a child aged 7 years or older has reached the age of reason. Because a child has reached the age of reason, he or she will receive all three Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation) at the same time, usually during the Easter season.
