Baptism

At St. Mary’s, the SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM is usually celebrated at 12:30 pm on the last Sunday of the month. One month notice is required. Please meet the pastor before you finalize the date for baptism.

BAPTISM PREP is held every second Thursday of the month. Parents who are having their first child baptized must attend the baptism class. Godparents of all children who will be baptized in our church are also required to attend the baptism course. A certificate will be given to all those who attend the baptism class.

Godparents for the Sacrament of Baptism must be Catholics who have have received the sacraments of Eucharist, Confirmation and lead a life in harmony with the faith and the role to be undertaken.

If you have a school-aged child whom you would like baptized and prepared for Eucharist and Confirmation, you may be interested in the information available on our PREP page.

If you are an adult seeking Baptism, you must first enroll in the Roman Catholic Initiation for Adults referred to as RCIA. St. Mary’s RCIA meets on Tuesday evenings in the Parish Centre starting at 7:00 pm. For more information contact the parish office at 604.792.2764 or visit the RCIA page on our website.
