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.
Before Baptism can take place, parents must complete the Baptismal Preparation Class. Godparents are encouraged to take part in the Baptism Preparation class as well. Parents can take the classes before the child is born.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org) this form: 603A_BaptismOfAChildForm2Jan20
Infant Baptism: can be scheduled to take place at Mass or outside of Mass. Please contact the office or download the link above for a registration form. Complete and email it to the office with a copy of the front and back of your child’s government issued Birth Registration for documentation. First time parents must complete the Baptism Preparation Course.
