I attended Mass in a parish far from home and was quite surprise to see how they deal with baptism.
The ritual is spread over at least 2 Sundays, with the reception of the child one Sunday and the baptism on another Sunday. I can’t remember if they did the anointing with the Oil of Catechumen at the same Mass as the reception or if that was done separately on a second Sunday with Baptism on a third Sunday.
I know that for baptisms that occur at the Easter Vigil, all those rituals are done before “at a convenient time” but I was wondering if it was OK to split the Rite of Baptism over two or three Sundays like that on a regular basis? I’ve searched documents but haven’t come up with an answer to the question.
