Your baby's baptism is a wonderful reminder that the Church and God's entire family continue to grow.
This 30-minute DVD celebrates and renews your faith while strengthening your decision to raise your child in the Catholic faith. As you ask -What name will I give my child?, - -What do I ask of God's Church?, - and -Am I willing to raise my child in the practice of the Church?, - be present to God's Word and symbols and experience the fullness of the prayer that happens during the rite of baptism.
As Fr. Jim Deiters guides you through the sacrament, he will help you embrace our faith community and feel the difference it makes in your life. Your Baby's Baptism will strengthen and encourage you to clothe yourself in mercy, compassion, forgiveness, and love as you go forth to raise your child in the Catholic faith.
Special Feature: A 7-minute message from Lisa Hendey, creator of CatholicMom.com and the Catholic Mom Moments blog and podcast, who explains the importance of parents as the first teachers of the faith.
