Baptism is the first sacrament celebrated in the process of becoming a full member in the Catholic Church. The waters of baptism symbolize life and death, washing and cleansing, and the mystery of new life out of death. At the baptism of a child (or any person), we celebrate and reflect on God's unconditional love and welcome him or her into our faith.
Before your child is baptized the following requirements need to be fulfilled.
- Your child mustmust be under 5 years.
- The parent must belong to a Jumuiya within the church
- The parents and the child must attend the preparation classes that takes place every sunday after first mass.
- A Godparent must be a confirmed Catholic, practicing catholic faith, and be willing to accept the responsibility of supporting their godchild in faith
