Baptism


#1

Is it OK for my 8 year old son to get baptized by a non Catholic preacher? Can he still get communion in the Catholic Church if he has only been baptized non-denominational?

This is for the L&S forum.

Why won't your son be baptized by a Catholic clergyman (bishop/priest/deacon)?

My Wife is not Catholic (she grew up 7th day Adventist, I know, I know) and she wants him to make his own choices. He wants to start training for communion, but she will not allow him to be Baptized Catholic.

Sounds complicated. Seek counsel from your priest, maybe they can work something out.
