Congratulations for baptism

Child baptized with water by priest

Relatives, friends and especially the godfather should write a few lines of congratulations to the person baptized. The greeting card becomes personal with a saying or a poem or verse. On this page you will find very personal congratulations for baptism, these texts and templates can be used in your greeting card. When writing the congratulations you should pay attention to an impressive overall picture of the greeting card, so your congratulations on the birth will be remembered for a long time.

The greeting card

There are countless greeting cards to buy. Some have, according to the occasion, Christian motifs, on others you can find humorous pictures and sayings. When buying, pay attention to how well you know the parents. In the case of close relatives and good friends, whose tastes you know, you can calmly show some wit. But if you write a congratulation to someone who is not so close to you, a serious card would be appropriate.
. Of course, you can also make a greeting card yourself. You can find materials in stationery or craft store.

Personalization of congratulations

In any case, a congratulations on the christening should be written by hand. This makes the card more personal and thus better remembered. If you have an illegible writing, it would be better to practice the congratulations in advance.
. In your congratulatory text, always keep in mind the attitude to life and the situation of the person being congratulated, this way you will avoid putting your foot in your mouth. Also with ironic and with allusions you are often not well advised. Criticism is in any case not appropriate in a congratulations card.

The structure

A congratulation is usually structured like this: Salutation, naming the occasion, congratulations, wishes for the future, greeting and signature.

The salutation

At a baptism, congratulations should be addressed to the child. In addition, you can also name the parents when addressing them. In any case, the person being baptized can be addressed by his or her first name; for the parents, you must decide how close you are to them.
Here are some examples for the salutation:

  • Dear Stefan...
  • Dear little Lilly...
  • Hello my little Stefan...
  • Dear Stefan, dear parents...
  • Dear baptized child...
  • Dear godchild...
  • My dear godchild...
  • Dear Stefan, dear family Schmidt...
  • Dear Stefan, dear family Schmidt...

Congratulations for baptism

When congratulating them, you should decide whether you are well acquainted with the parents or if you have a not so close relationship. In the case of relatives and friends, you may calmly formulate with a little wit, otherwise keep the congratulations a little more factual.
