We are very pleased to welcome you to our parish and share with you the joy of the baptism of your child. Our goal is to accompany you on a profound journey towards the baptism of your child. You will be accompanied on this journey by a group of clergy and lay people who form the baptismal team. After completing the Baptism Registration Form and handing it to the office, you will receive a call from a deacon who will arrange to visit you at your home accompanied by a member of the baptismal team.
Baptism is not just a date to be booked, it is much more: it is joining a Christian family called the Church. Therefore we will request that you present your child to our community at one of our week end masses. You will also be required to be present for a half-day session of preparation before the baptism.
Please note that the possible baptism date indicated by the Parish Office is only a tentative date. The official baptism date will be confirmed to you by the baptism minister or a member of the baptism team. Therefore no travel, hall or party arrangements should be made until you have a confirmed baptism date from the baptism team. This will avoid any disappointment or unnecessary costs being incurred, for which we are not responsible.
For further information, please call, Mrs. June D'Sylva or Fr. Bertrand Montpetit: 514-684-6488.

These are questions and more are answered in this edition of "Sacraments 101," a web video series geared for those who'd like an introduction or refresher course on these important, tangible Catholic experiences of God. Baptism is the beginning of the sacramental life of the Church. So, let's begin...
