New Baptism Preparation Resources:

  • Springs of Faith baptism preparation program we released early last year. The program is well suited to meet the current needs of evangelizing young adults, helping parishes build communities of faith within this population, and connecting them to the larger parish faith community. The website includes a full program overview as well as samples of both print and digital components.
    • Springs of Faith – A Bilingual Baptism program in three phases that supports lifelong faith formation and promotes parish engagement. Designed for young adults and families who long for a faith community and are considering having their children baptized in the Catholic Church. The program is available in English and Spanish.
  • Springs of Faith brochure
  • Baptism Explained A Short Course to Prepare for Your Child's Baptism. The most turn-key sacramental prep ever! A FREE course of online videos to prepare parents for the baptism of their child. In 8 short videos - most a little over 5 minutes - parents learn everything they need to know before their child's Baptism. Parents watch one 5-minute video per night
    for a week
    to be fully catechized on the Sacrament of Baptism. This removes the need for expensive baptismal prep programs . . . And it ensures they’ll be neither bored nor disengaged. Our aim was simple:  to create the most effective and inexpensive baptismal prep program that evangelizes and catechizes parents and encourages them to develop a spiritual life.
