Baptism is a sacrament of Initiation as one of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church.
It is generally performed on infants but for various reasons can also be performed later in life.
The parents chose a sponsor or god-parent. More than one god-parent may be chosen however at least one of these needs to be a practising Catholic, above the age of sixteen and who has received the sacrament of confirmation.
Baptism instruction is a requirement for the parents and godparents or sponsors and is conducted by the parish priest a week prior to baptism.
