Baptism

All celebrations of Baptism, First Eucharist, First Reconciliation and Confirmation are postponed until the Chief Medical Officer has advised that the pandemic has ended.

The Sacrament of Baptism is often called “the door of the Church,” because it is the first of the seven sacraments not only in time (since most Catholics receive it as infants) but in priority, since the reception of the other sacraments depends on it.

Once baptized, a person becomes a member of the Church – and not just in this parish, but of the whole Catholic church worldwide.

Baptism Preparation

Parents requesting Baptism must contact the Parish office by calling 780-632-3272 during office hours. Parents must bring the child’s Birth Certificate to the office so we can photocopy and record it, and please also complete, print and bring in (or email to: stmartintours.vegreville@caedm.ca) this Baptism Registration Form.

Before Baptism can take place, parents must complete the Baptismal Preparation Class. The next Baptism Preparation class is at 9:00 am Saturday morning, March 21, 2020. Godparents are encouraged to attend the Baptism Preparation class. As well, people can take the classes before the child is born.

Baptism Celebrations

Baptism celebrations are scheduled in consultation with the office and Rev. Father Vu.

Please Note for all Sacramental Classes: All registrations for all sacraments must be complete and in the office, prior to the beginning of classes. To register for Sacramental Classes please come in to the office in person or call the parish office at 780-632-3272.
