Baptism Preparation

Online Baptism Preparation Sessions

Our monthly Baptism Preparation Class (online at this time) will be on Saturday, September 26, 10am to 12noon, facilitated by Ferdie & Malou Gayos of the Missionary Families of Christ (MFC).  We are looking at the possibility of in-person classes in the next months.  The celebration of the sacrament is with one family at a time with up to 50 attendees, observing all AHS and diocesan protocols, including wearing of masks, social distancing and contract tracing documentation.

Please contact Fr Edmund for details (403 252-1137) or email (efvargas@shaw.ca)  or text (403 8742015).

If you are interested in having your child or children baptized, complete the Child Baptism Request Form and submit to the parish office along with a copy of your child’s birth certificate.

The candidate may have one or two godparents (also called sponsors) who are to be chosen by the parents, One of the sponsors must be a Roman Catholic who has already received the Sacraments of  Eucharist and Confirmation, and is leading a life in harmony with the Catholic Faith. Neither the father nor mother of the child may be a sponsor.

Baptism dates are scheduled by Fr. Edmund Vargas.

Attendance at a Baptism Preparation Class prior to the baptism is required if you have not attended one previously.

The Baptism Preparation Program ensures that parents have a clear understanding of their role and responsibilities as Christian parents and deepens their understanding of the Sacraments, particularly baptism.

Please fill-out the Child Baptism Request Form.
