Baptism and Christian Initiation

Updated: 1 April 2001

Present Interests

For some years I felt a vague dissatisfaction with the Roman Catholic rite of baptism for children as it was celebrated in my own community. During 1997-98 I studied and thought about this liturgy more deeply, and prepared a thorough critique of it. This is posted as indicated above. To accompany this critique, I also prepared two model liturgies that would, I hoped, respond to the criticisms I made. These are posted under Liturgies for the Future. I offer these for study and discussion and in the hope that they and the published critique may help improve the official rites of the church.
