Hi. I was baptized Roman Catholic and do not practice religion. I am a spiritual individual in the sense that I believe in a greater power (God, the energy of the universe, etc.) and feel this presence in me every day. I don't like the hypocracy of organized religion and find myself wanting to share in my spirituality with my daughter (who is turning 1 next month) without baptizing her into organized religion. I believe in faith and being spiritual. I would like to have a celebration of faith and love with the people close to us for her in lieu of a baptism and thought I'd incorporate it with her one year birthday. Please help as I am in need of suggestions for this. I don't want to baptize because I don't want to be a hypocrite when asked if I will raise her in the catholic way.
