Infant & Early Childhood Baptism Preparation Program
The SJEC has published a facilitator’s guide for baptism preparation classes! It is already being used in many parishes to conduct classes for parents. The guide includes everything facilitators need to have classes under the guidance of their pastor. Scripted text, resource suggestions, and activities are included. Also, there are two PowerPoint presentations that accompany the program. Click to the left and the right above to download these presentations for previewing. If your parish would like more information about how to adopt this program for your baptism preparation classes, contact us at the email on the top left corner of the webpage.
