Code of Canon Law for Catechists: Part 4
‘Adult’ and ‘Infant’ and the Sacrament of Baptism In the previous article Fr Rosney briefly explored the issue of formation for baptism, and in particular for adult and infant baptism. In this article he clarifies the terms ‘adult’ and ‘infant’ for the purposes of determining those subject to the prescriptions of the canons on adult baptism. Fundamentally the intention of the law is clear: that there be a structure in place for catechetical formation for children.
