The Sacrament of Baptism is often called “the door of the Church,” because once baptized, a person becomes a member of the Church – and not just in this parish, but of the whole Catholic Church worldwide.
Our parish typically offers Baptism after 5 pm Mass on Saturday or after 11:30 am Sunday Mass. Scheduling is done when intending parents/sponsors (godparents) attend Baptism Preparation Course. Please ensure the date is available before making other preparations because some weekends are either fully booked or unavailable for baptisms.
To confirm availability of date please contact Baptism Ministry Leader at 780-473-4259 ext 3.
The Sacrament of Baptism for infants to age 7 is the first of the Sacraments of Initiation by which your child becomes a member of the Body of Christ, the Church. In the waters of Baptism, your child participates in the dying and rising to new life with Jesus.
Through Baptism, a child begins a journey of faith with God, supported by the Catholic Christian Community. St. Dominic Savio Parish considers the Celebration of Baptism a special time for family, friends, and the entire parish community.
