In the Catholic tradition (Italians in Dobrogea,
Catholic communities from Tulcea and Sulina) the religious
integration of newborn takes place in three stages: Baptism, Chrism and Eucharist.
At Roman Catholics the baptism is done by aspersion. Church
recommends to be celebrated the sacrament in the Easter Vigil or Sunday morning, in
the first weeks after childbirth. Child is held in the
arms by godfather or godmother; the priest put
a tray under the chin and the baby is sprinkled
