Baptism Instructions


Hi families!
Congratulations for the blessing that is your newest little one! Welcome to our adapted baptism preparation from Our Lady of Light.

Due to the unusual times we are in and the request of our Bishop who is still limiting gatherings, we are adapting our preparation for baptism and offering it for both Parents and for Godparents. Thank you for your patience as we try this new thing and please send us your feedback about the programs we provide for you. It helps us improve things for our beautiful young families.

The online series we will be using for this is called “Reborn” and is offered completely free of charged though our parish subscription. Aim to complete the series within a month’s timespan. If you have not started the series by the time we are holding classes in person we will transition you into those classes because our catechists are so dynamite. We do not know when this will be but we will keep you in the loop.

Here’s what you do:

-Go to www.formed.org

-Sign in: Use Our Lady of Light as your parish, they will send you a link by email which you will click to get into their huge catalog of free resources. (FYI all of these resources on the entire site are free for you use at your convenience!)

Baptism Parents:

Please watch these four videos using the study guide available on the website as your guide for discussion.

Each parent should fill out the small group discussion questions once you view the videos, pages 8, 16, and 24, and return those pages to the office as “Proof of completion.” You will need to turn in a separate set of answers for each parent.

You can use a blank sheet of paper for your responses if you do not have a printer, and return by mail or email, scanned or a picture. Please write clearly so we can read your handwriting.

Godparents:

Please watch these four videos using the study guide available on the website as your guide for discussion. Each Godparent and Christian Witness should fill out the small group discussion questions once you view the videos, pages 8, 16, and 24, and return those pages to the office as your proof of completion. You will need to turn in a separate set of answers for each parent. You can use a blank sheet of paper for your responses if you do not have a printer, and return by mail or email, scanned or a picture. Please write clearly so we can read your handwriting.

We hope this is a lovely process for your family as you explore becoming a Catholic family together.
