Sacrament of Baptism

You are preparing to have your child baptized.  This is a very special time for you and your family.  Whether you child is a new born or a few years old, this is a time for celebrating God’s gift of life and love. 

As you child is welcomed into the family that is the Christian community, you are committing yourself as a parent to the nurturing and development of your child’s faith and spiritual life. 

This is also an important moment for the Christian community.  As we stand beside you to welcome your child into the Church, so too do we reaffirm our own Baptismal calling as individuals and as a community.    This shared Baptism brings us together and unites us in the Body of Christ.  We are on a journey with Christ, who’s saving love heals, reconciles, and transforms us so that we may participate in his ministry and mission that is the Kingdom of God.

Here at Our Lady Of Lourdes Parish we hope that this will be a time of many graces and blessings for you and your family.  We hope that you will fell welcomed and included in our Parish family and that Lourdes will always be a place where your child’s faith life and your own will be enriched and supported.

To begin the process of preparing for your child's Baptism, we ask you to be in touch with our Parish Pastoral Centre by e-mailing us at parish@ourladyoflourdes.ca or calling us at 416-924-6257.  We will take some basic information from you regarding your child and schedule you for an upcoming Baptismal preparation session.   Or if you would like, you may print out the baptismal form to fill out and then drop it off at the Parish Pastoral Centre.

The sessions take place monthly in our parish. The date of your child's baptism will be set at the preparation session.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please be in contact with Anna Paolo at the Rectory, you can find our contact information on the About page here.  If you would like more information regarding baptism please feel free to download our baptism information package.

 

Reminder:

  • Our Baptism schedule fills up quickly.  Be sure to contact us at the parish well in advance of the desired date for Baptism.
  • Normally, Baptisms take place in the Parish in which you are registered and regularly attend for Mass.  However, if you are not currently in our parish but you would like to have your child baptized here at Our Lady Of Lourdes, we are happy to meet with you to discuss your circumstances and the possibilities within our schedule.
