I’m being baptised at Easter Vigil. Since I’m new to Catholicism, I’m new to the associated customs/protocols and want to be appropriate.
Should I give a gift to my sponsor? How about the priest? I read somewhere that priests are often given a monetary offering for an infant baptism. This is an adult baptism, however – is a monetary gift appropriate, or in poor taste? Any suggestions on the “right” type of gifts, or if money is the appropriate offering to a priest, how much is the custom? I feel out of my element here and don’t want to offend anyone.
Thanks for any suggestions!
