The initial rite will include Parents, Child/Children and if possible Godparents.  The child should be dressed in a simple outfit (not the baptismal garment). The initial rites will be approximately 40 minutes.   

The Celebration of the Ceremony will continue on Sunday at the 12:30 PM Mass. The child should be brought to the church in a “one-zee” or another simple outfit. The child will be clothed during the celebration of the Sacrament after the pouring of the water. It is appropriate that the mother and godmother cloth the baby in the white Christening garment.
