Since this is a sacrament of initiation (introduction) to the Catholic Community the following must take place: *The parents must be registered at Our Lady of Fatima, and be consistently seen attending Mass in this church. *If this is the first child, parent (s) must attend a Baptismal Preparation class. *Godparents must be Baptized, Confirmed, and practicing Catholics. One Godparent can be of a Protestant denomination. If for good reason Godparents are from out of town, or another Catholic church in town, a letter from their pastor is required to state they are practicing members in good standing. *A visitation with the priest or deacon is necessary before scheduling a date for the Baptism of the child. *Those not registered in our parish must have written permission from their pastor to have their child Baptized in our church.
