How do I register for baptism?
Are there requirements for the parents?
When are baptisms held?
Baptisms can be held at a variety of times. Since the Sacrament of Baptism is about welcoming your child into the Christian community, celebrating the sacrament at a weekend or even a weekday Mass is preferred. However, baptisms for invited friends and family may also be arranged.
What are the requirements for godparents?
How old can a godparent be?
Can there be more than 2 godparents?
What if a godparent is out of town and cannot make the baptism?
Is there a cost for the baptism preparation resources?
Yes - we use the online baptismal prepartion resource from Ascension Press called, Belonging: Baptism in the Family of God. This resource costs ~$12 CAD and is to be paid for by your family. Please contact us if you need assistance or if this is not feasible for your family.
