For the celebration of Baptism, the family must be a registered member of Nativity Catholic Church*. Parents (and Godparents if possible) need to complete a Baptism orientation class. If Godparents are from other communities, letters of affirmation from their pastor must be provided as to their suitability. To be a Godparent, one must be 17 years old, received the Sacrament of Confirmation and be an active/practicing Catholic.
*Arrangements can be made for non-parishioners to be baptized at Nativity in certain situations. Contact the church for this information at 615-794-4004.
