Baptisms for babies are very special occasions for parents. A baptism signifies the removal of original sin and the introduction of a baby into Catholicism and his or her union with Christ. Baptisms signify the unification of the child with Christ and the presence of family and friends boosts the significance of this act by their witness of this important life moment. These family and friends, especially the godparents, can help to guide this child to continue on the path of God and to continue to make good decisions in his or her life.
Since baptisms signify such an important moment in life, more often than not, there is a celebration following the baptism. Family and friends are invited to celebrate this baptism with food, gifts, and cake. Food and cake are the invitor’s responsibility, but the gifts are something that friends and family should bring to the celebration. If you’re unsure as to what kind of gifts you should bring to a catholic baptism celebration, we can help.
A beginner’s bible is a great gift for a baptism. This bible can be read to the baby as he gets older throughout his childhood. It can be a starting point to teach the child bible verses and some stories from the bible in words he or she can understand and pictures he or she can see.
