Baptism is a rite of initiation that heralds an infant's entry into the Church of Christ and Christian religious life. This involves either a ritual immersion of the infant in water or pouring water over the infant's head. This symbolic ceremony is deemed an ordinance or rite commanded by the Catholic religion. The infant is dressed in a special white gown with accompanying shoes and socks. Look up our guide for baptism gift ideas.
