Seven Practical Tips As You Prepare for Your Child's Baptism

1. If your parish has a program to help prepare parents for the Baptism of their child, participate in the program early in the pregnancy.

2. If not, contact the parish three or four months before the child's birth. Ask for a copy of the Baptism ceremony and prayerfully study its rich symbols and prayers.

3. Choose godparents who will be a real and long-lasting help in the Christian formation of your child. It would be helpful if they could participate in the Baptism preparation with you. They are meant to be more than "honorary" sponsors.

4. Track down the family christening dress. And consider making or decorating the white baptismal garment used near the end of the ritual. You might also decorate the baptismal candle with baptismal symbols, using acrylic paints or nail polish. If there are other children in the family, they can help.

5. You might write a "Parents' Prayer" or "Parents' Wish" that includes your hopes and dreams for this new child. Check with the priest or parish leaders to see if there may be a time during or before the ceremony when you can pray or read it aloud. Or present it at a party afterwards.

6. Make the ceremony a community event. Invite relatives, friends and neighbors to participate in the Baptism liturgy. Some could serve as Scripture readers or musicians.

7. Keep the white garment, the candle, the prayers, photos and other symbols of the baptismal ceremony to share with your child in future years. These keepsakes can be brought out on the child's anniversary of Baptism or birthday and serve as powerful reminders of the ongoing importance of the event.

A Baptism Gown For That Special Day

 

A Baptism is a holy event when family and friends get together to witness and share in the joy of your little one becoming a member of God’s family. It is the most important first occasion for your child, and as parents, the memories will remain forever. On an aesthetic and symbolic level, the Baptism gown is an important part of the Baptismal day. And while today, more than ever, the selection of gowns is endless; the majority of parents still opt for the traditional white Baptism gown.

A baptism gown is special for a number of reasons. First of all, they are symbolic of the rite of Baptism. The white material of the gown symbolizes the innocence and purity of the child who knows no sin. Everyone knows how innocent and precious a baby is, but that sentiment is reinforced when a baby is wearing white. Another reason the gowns are so special is because if you are baptizing your first child, Baptism gowns can become an heirloom piece; whereby, it is passed down from baby to baby and generation to generation. A tradition can either be carried on, or passed down during this important time in your family’s life.

While the traditional white Baptism gown is the most favored of outfits for both boys and girls, some parents have opted to dress their boys in Baptism tuxedos, or a Christening suit. Often these ensembles come with caps, or robes, so there is a blend of traditional and modern sentiment in the designs.

When looking for your baby’s Baptism gown remember what it was like to shop for your wedding dress. You wanted to look your best, not only for your husband, but because it was one of the most important days in your life. Therefore, much like your wedding day is your baby’s Baptism day. You want them to wear something that marks this is an important day in their life – the beginning of their journey in faith.

When shopping for a Baptism gown don’t worry about what the latest trend may be. Instead, shop with your heart and allow yourself to fall in love with something. Take advantage of the fact that your child can’t yet voice their opinion, because if they could, the frilly gown you selected would most definitely remain on the store rack! It is also important to remember that some of the best selections of Baptism gowns and Christening gowns are available at online stores at some of the best prices available anywhere!
