Q&A

If a child is in danger of death, would a secret baptism – without the parents’ knowledge – be valid?

Question:

My sister’s newborn suffered a stroke during delivery and is not expected to live. She and her husband refuse to have their son baptized, so my mother wants to baptize their baby in secret. Would such a baptism be valid?
