"I will sprinkle clean water upon you to cleanse you from all your impurities, and from all your idols I will cleanse you." (Ezekiel 36:25)
Step Two - Godparents (Sponsors)
You may have one or two Godparents. If you have two Godparents, they must be one male and one female. At least one of your sponsors must be a Godparent that is a registered and practicing Catholic. The second sponsor, if you have one, can be a Godparent or Christian witness. A Christian witness is a non-Catholic Christian sponsor. Godparents are welcome to attend our baptism class or a class at their home parish. We do not require the class for Godparents. All Godparents must complete a Godparent Eligibility Form, signed by their pastor and return it to us within two weeks of the scheduled baptism date.
Step Three - Take the Baptism Class
Parents need to attend a baptism preparation class. Godparents are encouraged to attend as well. In preparation for the baptism class, we request that couples watch the three Reborn video segments on the Formed.org. Sign up for a free account at: www.catholicsteamboat.formed.org. We provide a one hour class for parents and Godparents to prepare for baptism, the first Sacrament of Initiation into the Catholic Church. Please contact Kathy Northcutt at 970 879-3396 or firstname.lastname@example.org or in español, Lupita Hathaway at 970-819-6084 or [email protected] to schedule a class.
Step Four - Schedule the Baptism
