                                                                       “The Ideal Parishioner”
                                                                  By Rev. John S. Spence — November 19, 1936.
Conference from an Evening of Recollection Given at the Washington Retreat House

The people know the priests but the priest cannot know all the people. It is their duty and place to make some initial reverence, and the priest will always respond.

                                                                              AIDS TO PARISH LIFE
REGISTRATION
The parish files should contain essential information relating to the spiritual condition of every Catholic within the borders of the parish.
As soon as possible, after taking residence in the parish, the head of the family should call at the rectory to register, giving to the priest all information which may bear upon the spiritual standing of all members of the family, of children as well as of adults. The names of aged and infirm, unable to attend church regularly, should be made known so they may be placed on the Communion list.
Persons or families leaving the parish should report their transfer to the rectory and promptly register in their new parish.
Attending Mass in another parish church does not alter one's membership. The faithful are heartily encouraged to attend Sunday Mass and Devotions in their parish church as far as possible. The efforts of the pastor and his assistants will be much more effective when parishioners do not roam from church to church.
Registration, and even a change of address, or any other pertinent information is important for many reasons: better care of souls, more effective administration, sick calls, matters pertaining to Baptism, Marriage, education of children, etc.
Loyalty to and love of one's own parish will bring many rewards. Members of families are urged to affiliate themselves with parish activities and societies. By doing so they will keep in the shadow of the Church, and, as is virtually always the case, will be faithful Catholics.
BAPTISMS
Infants should be baptized without unnecessary delay, as soon after birth as is convenient. When their strength allows, infants who have been baptized in emergency should be brought to the church at regular Baptism time, when the full ceremonies of solemn Baptism will he supplied.
It is of gravest importance that infants baptized in danger of death were validly or properly baptized. When there is any reasonable doubt, Of suspicion that the emergency Baptism was not valid, the opinion and advice of the priest should be asked. If private Baptism was administered in a Catholic hospital a certificate of Baptism should be brought to the church.

SPONSORS;

Sponsors must, without exception, and indeed for the validity of their sponsorship, he Catholics. They should be carefully selected for their qualities and capabilities as persons who Will faithfully discharge the duties of god parents, as defined by Church law. Careless or fallen-away Catholics should not be selected, nor should, ordinarily, persons in such state of health or advanced age that they probably would not live long enough to fulfill their duties as godparents, should necessity for their assistance arise. Sponsors must be at least fourteen years of age, unless, for a just cause, the minister of Baptism decides otherwise.
Sponsors might prepare themselves before the Baptism by receiving the sacraments and by reflecting on the graces of Baptism. They should also know the prayers , such as the Apostles' Creed and responses for the ceremony.
INFORMATION:
Parents must provide for the Baptism the exact information, the names of the child, the parents, the sponsors (and of proxies, if used), the date and place of birth, etc.
NAMES:
Names for children should be selected in conformity with the noble traditions of the Church, entrusting children to the care of heavenly patrons, whose virtues the little ones should be trained to imitate. Stylish or aristocratic sounding names, or other non-Catholic names of persons currently popular should not be preferred to those of the saints of immortal glory, even when a Christian name which may never be used is added. During the period of expectancy parents might review the lists of Catholic names, i.e. saint’s names.
