My son is 20 weeks old tomorrow.
Me and my partner are both Catholics and would like to get him Christened but have found the process so far very frustrating.
The priest took 3 weeks from us ringing him and asking about how to go about it before getting in touch with us to pick up a form to fill in.
Once we got the form it was pretty confusing to fill in as we were told we could only have 2 Godparents (though we would have liked more), when we knew others who live within the same diocese as us had been allowed more Godparents.
One again we rang the priest to question this and didn't hear back from him. Eventually after 2 weeks I called in to church and spoke to him. He told me that the form was correct so we had to choose just 2 Godparents.
I filled the form in and posted it into the church the next day.
Once again we waited to hear back. After 3 weeks of no reply we rang up to be told that we were on the priests 'to do' list. That was a week ago.
We know from filling the form in that we still have to do a course which takes 2 months to complete.
My Mam is currently going through treatment for cancer and obviously we would have liked to have had this sorted sooner.
Has anyone else been through anything similar? We're both very frustrated as obviously if we were dealing with other people this service just wouldn't be seen as good enough but with it being the church you feel like you can't complain.
Sorry about the rant .Am just frustrated with how slow things are going.
