There are three baptismal orders in the Prayer Book: 'The Ministration of Public Baptism of Infants to be used in the Church', 'The Ministration of Private Baptism of Children in Houses', and 'The Ministration of Baptism to such as are of Riper Years and Able to Answer for Themselves'. In addition, there is a Catechism and an order for Confirmation. Private baptism is only meant to be conducted in emergencies, and so this order contains the provision for such baptisms to be ratified later in a public service. The order for the baptism of those able to answer for themselves mainly differs from the order for infant baptism only in the Bible readings and exhortations.
