IMPORTANT NOTES on BAPTISM:

Infant Baptism Policy

POLICY:

Each parish will provide catechesis for parents and godparents of infants, and children to the age of six, to be baptized. The preparation must take into account the principles of faith development and community involvement presented in the General Directory for Catechesis (GDC), 1998, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC). This policy pertains to the baptism of infants and children up to the age of six. If children to be baptized are of catechetical age, their preparation follows the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, approved for Diocese of the United States, part II, 1. The celebration of the Baptism of Infants depends on the pastor, or his delegated representatives, having reasonable assurance that the parent (s) and godparents are deepening their faith life and that the parent (s) accept the responsibility to nurture the faith of their child.

IMPLEMENTATION:
A catechetical team will be formed for baptismal catechesis. Team members should be adequately formed to fully understand their role and be able to minister to and with the parents, godparents, and the parish as a whole.

Catechesis with parents and godparents of the children centers on the following areas:

a. The faith awareness of the parents and godparents and the desire for continual growth in faith;

b. Christian parenting and the key role of parents in the faith development of the child;

c. Reflection on the meaning and significance of the symbols of the Rites and symbols of initiation
. The planning and celebration of the baptism for children follows the document on the Rite of Baptism for Infants as approved by the Bishops of the United States in 1969.

To witness the importance of the parish community in the faith life of the parents and child, Baptism should be celebrated in the context of a parish liturgy. This provides the link with Eucharist as an initiation sacrament. Announcements and other community opportunities will be made to the entire parish for welcoming its new members.

Those identified as sponsors should:


  1. Be designated by the one to be baptized, by the parents or the one who takes their place, or, in their absence, by the pastor or minister;

  2. Have the qualifications and intention of performing this role;

  3. Have completed the sixteenth year, unless a different age has been established by the diocesan bishop or it seems to the pastor or minister than an exception is to be made for a just cause;

  4. Be a Catholic who has been confirmed and has already received the sacrament of the Eucharist and leads a life in harmony with the faith and the role to be undertaken;

  5. Not be bound by any canonical penalty legitimately imposed or declared;

  6. Not be the father or the mother of the one to be baptized (Can. #874). 

 

A Parish is territorial. Priority for Baptism is only for the registered members or those who reside within the territory of St. James the Less Church in Perris. Those who belong to other Parish should ask a letter of permission from the Pastor to be baptized in St. James the Less Church.

Política de bautismo infantil

POLÍTICA:

Cada parroquia proporcionará catequesis para los padres y los padrinos de los bebés, y los niños hasta la edad de seis años, para ser bautizados. La preparación debe tener en cuenta los principios del desarrollo de la fe y la participación de la comunidad presentados en el Directorio General para la Catequesis (GDC), 1998, y el Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica (CCC). Esta política se refiere al bautismo de bebés y niños hasta los seis años. Si los niños que van a ser bautizados son de edad catequética, su preparación sigue el Rito de Iniciación Cristiana de Adultos, aprobada para la Diócesis de los Estados Unidos, parte II, 1. La celebración del Bautismo de Infantes depende del pastor o sus representantes delegados , teniendo una seguridad razonable de que los padres y los padrinos están profundizando su vida de fe y que los padres aceptan la responsabilidad de nutrir la fe de sus hijos.

IMPLEMENTACIÓN:
Se formará un equipo catequético para la catequesis bautismal. Los miembros del equipo deben estar formados adecuadamente para comprender completamente su papel y poder ministrar a los padres, los padrinos y la parroquia en general.

La catequesis con padres y padrinos de los niños se centra en las siguientes áreas:

a. La conciencia de la fe de los padres y padrinos y el deseo de un continuo crecimiento en la fe;

b. La paternidad cristiana y el papel clave de los padres en el desarrollo de la fe del niño;

c. Reflexión sobre el significado y significado de los símbolos de los ritos y símbolos de iniciación. La planificación y celebración del bautismo para niños sigue el documento sobre el Rito del Bautismo para Niños, aprobado por los Obispos de los Estados Unidos en 1969.

Para dar testimonio de la importancia de la comunidad parroquial en la vida de fe de los padres y el niño, el bautismo debe celebrarse en el contexto de una liturgia parroquial. Esto proporciona el vínculo con la Eucaristía como un sacramento de iniciación. Se harán anuncios y otras oportunidades comunitarias a toda la parroquia para dar la bienvenida a sus nuevos miembros.

Aquellos identificados como patrocinadores deben:

1. Ser designado por el que se va a bautizar, por los padres o el que toma su lugar o, en su ausencia, por el pastor o ministro;

2. Tener las calificaciones y la intención de desempeñar este papel;

3. Haber completado el decimosexto año, a menos que el obispo diocesano haya establecido una edad diferente o al pastor o ministro le parezca que se debe hacer una excepción por una causa justa;

4. Sea un católico que haya sido confirmado y que ya haya recibido el sacramento de la Eucaristía y lleve una vida en armonía con la fe y el papel que debe asumir;

5. No estar sujeto a ninguna sanción canónica legalmente impuesta o declarada;

6. No ser el padre o la madre de quien se va a bautizar (Can. # 874).

 

Una parroquia es territorial. La prioridad para el bautismo es solo para los miembros registrados o aquellos que residen dentro del territorio de la Iglesia de St. James the Less en Perris. Aquellos que pertenecen a otra parroquia deben solicitar una carta de permiso del pastor para ser bautizados en la iglesia de St. James the Less.

Preparation is required for Parents and Godparents
In his dialogue with Nicodemus, Jesus taught that Baptism was necessary for salvation. “No one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit ” (Jn 3:5). After his Resurrection, Jesus met with the eleven Apostles and gave them the commission to preach the Gospel and baptize, telling them, “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved ” (Mk 16:16). 

The word baptism in its origins is Greek and means “immersion ” and “bath. ” Immersion in water is a sign of death and immersion out of the water means new life. To bathe in water is also to undergo cleansing. Saint Paul sums up this truth when he says, “You were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead ” (Col 2:12). 

The origin and foundation of Christian Baptism is Jesus. Before starting his public ministry, Jesus submitted himself to the baptism given by John the Baptist. The waters did not purify him; he cleansed the waters. “He comes to sanctify the Jordan for our sake . . . to begin a new creation through the Spirit and water ” (St. Gregory Nazianzen,Liturgy of the Hours, I, 634). 

Jesus’ immersion in the water is a sign for all human beings of the need to die to themselves to do God’s will. Jesus did not need to be baptized because he was totally faithful to the will of his Father and free from sin. However, he wanted to show his solidarity with human beings in order to reconcile them to the Father. 

By commanding his disciples to baptize all nations, he established the means by which people would die to sin – Original and actual – and begin to live a new life with God.
