It'a Time to Plan

I have two toddlers that are close in age. Jake is 2 and a half years old already while Justine is one year. I am a Roman Catholic but both my kids have not baptized yet. Traditionally in catholic, baptism should be done before the baby celebrate their first birthday. If we are living in the Philippines right now, I'd probably take care of this matter. The truth is I don't know anyone else in this area and I don't attend church mass anymore. My husband works in a Catholic University and he said he'll take care of. He will ask around at school about baptism. I think it's about time for us to plan for this important event but I do not know how to begin. Baptism invitations are never a problem as I can order them online. It's the church and priest that I am worried about. I don't know how this thing works here in America and I do not know anyone to ask about baptism. Anyhow, one of my Filipina friends that I met through Rose just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl yesterday. She is active in church in their area and I'm pretty sure they already plan her baby's baptism.

Both Jake and Justine are already quite big for water baptism as is being done in the Phils. But it's never too late to get them baptized for the Lord. I hope Joe can make arrangements for the baptism of your children. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
