Baptism is a time for celebration and joy because the newly baptised become members of God's family, the Church.
Baptism, requires a special level of commitment from both the child and their parents. It is important for families to understand the commitment they will undertake over the coming years. This is the reason why the Church requires parents to attend a course regarding the responsibilities of baptism.
