Symbolic baptism ceremony

The birth of a child is a major event in a couple’s life. To share the joy of the parents, and introduce their child can be done in many ways. For parents who do not believe in god, or those who think that belonging to a religion can only be done at the adult age but want to announce this event with a certain solemnity, the symbolic baptism ceremony will meet their expectation.To choose godparents, even if it remains symbolic is essential for the parents as for the godchild. The symbolic baptism ceremony is the promise of guiding the child by encouraging her/him to develop values that will help her/him become a conscious, free and happy person. It is a moral commitment of parents, godfather and godmother towards a child. The symbolic baptism ceremony is a moment of communion shared by all the guests.
