Baptismal offering

thanks to those who responded to my post a few weeks ago regarding baptizing dd when I am not catholic. We have found a church and have started the process Chat Icon

We received some paperwork yesterday confirming our information & date for the baptism. Also included was an envelope for baptismal offering.

How much is "standard"? Thank you!

Re: Baptismal offering

In our church you give what you can afford. We gae $150 with one and $50 with the other because that's what we could afford at the time.

i definitely agree that should be the case. $200 which was my first guess would be stretching it at this time so I'm glad $100-$150 seems to be fine

Thanks, everybody!
