Last year I married a Catholic, and we are now expecting our first child
It is important to my husband that the baby be raised Catholic- go to Catholic school, be baptized/confirmed/do first communion. I am supportive of this- my family is Lutheran but I feel less compelled than he does.
We already have the ball rolling on a Catholic baptism… however, I know that it would mean a lot to my parents to christen the baby in the same (Lutheran) church that I was christened in as well. My question is: would the Catholic Church be against this?
…my thought is that any non-Catholic baptism wouldn’t be recognized by the Catholic church, ergo there is no issue. My husband is seemingly less fine with a plan to do both and suspects the Catholic Church would object.
I would love to know the church’s position on this! The baby would be raised Catholic but with some traditions etc from my family. To this end, I like the idea of the two christenings. If the Catholic Church forbids this, I guess we will have to think about it further.
Thank you in advance!
