Adaptation for Special Circumstances

Deferred Baptism

In the case of young children, the parents may, in consultation with the pastor of the congregation, determine to defer baptism until the child is old enough to go through the catechumenate. In such case, parents go through the same process during the pregnancy and birth, but the stages conclude not with baptism but with the admission of the child to the catechumenate (page ). The parents and godparents should receive ongoing support in the formation of the child.
