  • The catholic church doesn't baptize but whenever you have a ceremony of any sort in basically any church it's customary to give an honorarium to the preacher.

  • Congratulations! Yes, it's customary to give the priest a donation to thank them - but it's subjective and is based on individual circumstances.

  • I am not going to argue religions but the catholic church does baptize because my dh was baptised and the priest says she will be baptised.
    Thanks,we will be making a gift;)
