So my friend who is a grandmother was telling me about another set of grandmothers who secretly BAPTIZED their grandchild without the parents’ approval!
The grandmothers were both Catholic and very active in their respective churches. The child is a toddler.
My friend wasn’t bothered by the secret baptism but I think it’s just crazy! You can’t go around baptizing kids without the parents knowing. Now they did tell the mother after the fact but I’m not clear on how much later.
So my questions are:
Do we all agree that you cannot secretly baptize your grandchild?
Can you secretly take them to your church if the parents aren’t practicing?
What are other no-nos for grandparents that they may think are perfectly OK because they did them with their own kids but they are NOT OK?
