From a field study of infant baptists

Baptism with a Head Covering?

My wife and I are convinced that women are to wear head coverings in public worship, as per 1 Corinthians 11:1-16. Several months after our first daughter was baptized, we came to the conclusion that there was no warrant to suppose that it would not apply to females of all ages (including our baby girls), as well.

So now, our second daughter will be baptized this coming Sabbath. Should she be baptized with the head covering on? Or should we take it off immediately before she is baptized?

This post and query drew a lengthy string of comments showing concern and thoughful speculating regarding the issue.

Ha, ha. Why not ask the question you really want to ask, paedobaptists: what does the Catechism of the Catholic Church say?

I get gently critiqued by an internet acquaintance on my attitude to all things churchian (including that word, I suppose), but the post I am mocking here is purely about ritualism, which isn't what the faith is about.
