Roman Catholic Baptism

Open bible lit by candle light

In the Roman Catholic Church, baptism takes place during mass, after the last mass on a Sunday morning or on Sunday afternoon.

At least one of the parents must be a practising Catholic. The child must have one godparent, but can have two.

It is usual for the parents to attend a couple of preparation sessions with the priest before the baptism.

The baptism ceremony is very similar to the Church of England, but normally the baby is a little younger.
