Holy Baptism is the Sacrament of regeneration and is the first step in Membership of the Catholic Church, making the recipient, "a member of CHRIST, the child of God, and an inheritor of the Kingdom of Heaven."
Baptism is administered by prayer and the pouring on of water (running water) in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and the sign of the Cross, sometimes being accompanied by other ceremonies on either a child or adult. It is known as "Christening," from the giving of the name, which should always be a reminder of our Christian profession, which is to follow CHRIST and to be made like unto Him. In respect to a child Sponsors or Godparents promise and vow in the name of the child certain promises. At least one of the Sponsors should be a member of the Anglican Catholic Church. An adult would make such promises on their own. A child should be brought to be baptized as soon as possible after birth.
The Sacrament of Confirmation is necessary to become a member of St Barbara's Anglican Catholic Church following baptism. Confirmation is accomplished by the laying on of hands by a Bishop in Apostolic Succession. The requirement for Confirmation which is intended to be administered to the young is that the Candiate can say the Creed, the Lord's Prayer and the Ten Commandments, and is sufficiently instructed in all other things a Christian ought to know and believe to his soul's health. Confirmation should invariably be preceded by the Sacrament of Penance, (Confession and Absolution) for the proper reception of the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Confirmation is not a matter of choice but is a matter of duty.
