"Re: But I haven't been invited

I actually find it unusual that one would need to be "invited" to a baptism. Every baptism I've attended has been word-of-mouth and anyone who wishes to attend, may do so. "
In the Catholic Church anyone can attend any church service including weddings, funerals, and baptisms.
However, you do not go to the wedding receptions and baptism parties unless invited.
In our area parishes provide a lunch after funerals. One of the difficult parts of planning my mother's funeral was trying to estimate how many people would come, so that the ladies who prepare the lunch would know how much to provide.
