Where to baptize? GICI tells:
25. The baptistery or the area where the baptismal font is located should be reserved for the sacrament of baptism and should be worthy to serve as the place where Christians are reborn in water and the Holy Spirit. The baptistery may be situated in a chapel either inside or outside the church or in some other part of the church easily seen by the faithful; it should be large enough to accommodate a good number of people. After the Easter season, the Easter candle should be kept reverently in baptistery, in such a way that it can be lighted for the celebration of baptism and so that from it the candles for the newly baptized can easily be lighted.
The priorities are as follows:
1. A chapel large enough to accommodate a “good number” of people.
2. A part of the main church, presumably ditto on accommodation.
What are not given as priorities: so-called “bird-bath fonts” tucked away, or worse, put on wheels for mobility’s sake.
