How do we get our granddaughter baptized?


My wife and I have custody of two grandchildren, a six year old girl and a 14 year old boy. Our grandson was validly baptized but our granddaughter was not. How do we go about getting our granddaughter baptized and getting the proper religious instruction for both of them?


Dear r,

Since you have custody of your granddaughter, you have a right to have her baptised. See your pastor about this.
