I would assume there's a church morning tea on afterwards.

I just wanted to clarify to PPs comments that I haven’t actually done a two tier invitation system for any baptism I‘ve hosted - my thinking is if I am close enough to have you at the baptism mass then I want to celebrate with you at a party/event afterwards! I would equally be miffed about only being invited to one part of the day and would probably politely decline.

But I also hadn’t thought of the option that maybe a morning tea would follow at the church itself - as this isn’t an option at the parish church we have used or any of my family and friends who have had baptisms in the past. I guess unfortunately you won’t know either way unless you directly ask or wait to see what happens at the conclusion of the church mass.

I would assume, as the invite suggests, you have been invited to the ceremony.

I think it would be worthwhile to just ask the question 'have you a rough idea of what time it will end', which would surely elicit a comment about 'baptism 9, morning tea 9:30 ' or somesuch if you've been invited to eat afterwards.

Would be extremely awkward if everyone else is talking about going somewhere to eat and you don't know if you've been invited.
