As a non-practicing Paegan with a non-practicing Christian family I would prefer to attend on Palm Sunday because I will have family plans on Easter.

I personally would rather attend something like that on Palm Sunday rather than Easter, but the church I grew up in is another that doesn't do baptisms during Lent.  I'd say that's the place to start when considering scheduling.

Thanks for everyone's help! After talking to my pastor, he was fine with a Palm Sunday baptism but we're actually having one of the church events (Confirmation) on Palm Sunday, which I want to avoid for those non-members who will likely want to attend the baptism but not sit through a 2 hour service. Instead, we'll be having it either the week after Easter or the next one, which puts us at about a month after the projected birth date.

I'm glad it's going to work out all right.  And I don't think a month is too late -- I was born in February and baptized in November.
