I’M NOT MARRIED OR I AM DIVORCED. MAY I STILL HAVE MY CHILD BAPTIZED?
Your marital status will be clarified during the baptismal preparation process.
Baptism is not denied if the parents are unmarried or not married in the Roman Catholic Church. However, there may be reason to postpone Baptism if parents are not practicing the Faith, or have no intention of living a Catholic life in harmony with the Gospel.
If your status is not in harmony with the Roman Catholic understanding of sacramental marriage, please inquire as to how we may help you enter into proper sacramental marriage or, if need be, seek a declaration of nullity by the Church.
