Baptism is one of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church, the first of the three sacraments of Christian initiation with the first participation in the Eucharist, that is, the first communion, and confirmation. It represents the moment when believers are delivered from their sins and become children of God. Being baptized, a person becomes incorporated in the Church and participates in the mission of Jesus, the mark imbued by God at the time of baptism is ineffaceable. For newborns, parents follow a baptismal preparation that helps them understand the meaning of this sacrament. At the ceremony, before being baptized, the catechumen makes the solemn promise to reject satan before professing his faith and commitment to Jesus Christ. In the case of a baptism practiced for a newborn, someone else performs this profession of faith in his name. During the ceremony, water is poured on the person's head. Immersion baptism, that is to say, where the person enters completely into the water or even to his knees, is also practiced within the Catholic Church, particularly by the Eastern Churches in all cases, it is an important event that we like to celebrate with family and friends.
Contrary to what most people believe in France, there are two types of baptism: religious baptism and civil baptism. Religious baptism is different from civil baptism, for example Catholic baptism celebrates the birth of a child and his entry into the Christian community, he becomes a "child of god". During this festival a godfather and godmother are awarded to the baptized person and the parents undertake to raise their child according to the principles of the Catholic religion, it is the first divine sacrament. The parents will then have to make a book of Mass that will be given to the priest and guests on the day of the religious baptism, a baptismal certificate will be given to the parents at the end. For baptized children of age to understand their commitments and adults, a baptismal preparation by catechesis will be organized.there; ">If you are not a believer but wish to baptize your child, you can opt for civil baptism, also called Republican baptism. It is the City Council which organizes the civil sponsorship, a certificate of baptism is also given and the godparents can if they wish to make a speech, it is moral commitment which translates of their attachment to the child.
