Hello! This spring will be the 10th anniversary of my baptism, and I would like to renew my baptismal vows in the place where I was baptized (Protestant denomination), partly for the Year of Faith indulgence but especially to make up for the fact that I privately renounced my baptism somewhere between then and now. I would probably need permission to visit the baptismal font, as it is located in a difficult-to-access area of my former church. What do people generally do in this situation? It would be just me, but is there a ceremony that I should follow? I was planning to wear the necklace that I was given at my baptism. Is there a special renewal of baptismal promises that should be recited? Any ideas are welcome, thanks!
One thing that that has bothered me about my baptism is the fact that the pastor who taught baptism classes told us that baptism was a sign of obedience but it would not do anything. I realize that the Catholic Church accepts my baptism regardless of the fact that neither me nor my pastor believed in a baptism of regeneration, but it is still worrisome. Should my renewal of baptismal vows include any kind of ammendment that would take this into account?
