As a practicing Catholics, can my wife and I attend a new age-like infant "blessing?
Some background – I have a niece who was raised Catholic and was adopted from a Catholic adoption agency, had a great up bringing, but now that she and her husband are having children, she refuses to baptize them. I’m not sure of the exact reason why. They are opting instead to have some new age-like infant blessing.
My siblings all had a great Catholic upbringing (and they will all admit it), yet after our parents passed away, they have all fallen away from the Church and/or have become very apathetic about their faith. Now it’s starting to reflect in their children’s decisions.
I am a bit distraught by this.
Any insights are appreciated. Thanks for responding!
