Baptismal Norms



Children of Catechetical Age

A non-baptized child old enough to be confirmed should be prepared for Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation before receiving any of these sacraments. These are to be administered together during the same ceremony of initiation. The priest in this situation has the faculty to confirm. Children between the customary ages of First Communion and Confirmation should receive the sacraments appropriate for their age.
