The NEW Belonging Parent's Guide

Belonging: Baptism in the Family of God is designed to provide parents with an incredible encounter with Jesus and with the Church. This program seeks to prepare parents to have their children baptized and to win over their hearts at this important time in their lives. Parents will learn what it means to be children of God and that in the Church, they will always have a place where they belong.

The Parent’s Guide has been designed to bring the experience of the sacrament to life. It presents:

  • Part I: The Meaning of Baptism
  • Part II: The Rite of Baptism
  • Part III: The Role of Parents and Godparents
  • Part IV: Raising a Young Catholic Family

The Parent’s Guide can be used along with the award-winning Belonging baptismal prep video series featuring Fr. Mike Schmitz, or it can be used on its own as a guide for your prep class.

Free PDF leader guides are available outlining 45-minute, 60-minute, 90-minute and 3-hour session times (click Leader’s Resources at the top of this page).
