Hi, guys —

I was baptized in the Catholic Church. The problem is, since then, my parents are not practicing Catholics.

  • Is my Baptism valid?

Thank you and God bless!


  { If my parents have not been practicing the Catholic faith, is my baptism still valid? }

Paul replied:


If you were validly baptized it doesn't matter whether or not your parents are practicing the faith.

Your baptism does not depend on their level of their practice.


Twincie replied:

I mean, I think they were already Protestants during that time.

  • Am I validly baptized?


Mike replied:


If you were baptized in the Catholic Church, the priest or deacon that baptized you would have made sure that you had not been previously baptized and that your Baptism was valid.

Your parents took on the responsibility to raise you as a Catholic at the time of your Baptism and they were given a Godfather and Godmother to help them.

If they were negligent in their responsibilities, it has no effect on your baptism; you are still part of the Body of Christ.

This means you are called to spread the full Catholic Gospel to others. Get connected with a ministry at your local Catholic parish and get involved!


Twincie replied:

Thanks and God bless :)
