Is infant baptism, chrismation and communion practiced in all the Oriental Orthodox Churches (Coptic, Syriac, Armenian etc)?
Are they all done on the same day, including communion? How old is the child usually when he/she has his/her baptism, chrismation and communion?
Also, is communion given in both kinds (body and blood) to infants?
Similarly, is communion given in both kinds (body and blood) to the rest of the laymen (older than infants)?
I would like to know if this is case for all the Oriental Orthodox Churches (Coptic, Syriac, Armenian etc)
In the OO Church, the infant is Baptized, Chrismated, and Communed on the same day; males at 40 days and females at 80 days for the Copts, Ethiopians, & Eritreans. I think for Armenians, its 80 days for both; not sure about Syriac & Indian Tradition. For Copts, only the Holy Blood is given at such a young age as they cannot take solids yet. But as soon as they can, they are given the Holy Body as well.
For all the OO Churches, Communion is given in both kinds.
