Baptism Preparation

Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.  Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as daughters and sons of God,  we become members of  Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.            (Catechism #1213)

Baptism preparation is intended for parishioners who are requesting baptism for their children. Baptism Preparation takes place once a month, usually on the 3rd Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m.  in the parish hall.

To register, call the parish office at 416 231 6016 or email

Volunteer Commitment:

There are three opportunities to serve on the baptism preparation team:

  1. Facilitator - leads the presentation and encourages discussion

  2. Hostess - prepares refreshments, prepares the space and provides a welcoming atmosphere.

  3. Admin. assistant - greets/checks-in participants, distributes name tags and hand-outs, assigns/confirms baptism dates, collects documents (birth certificates, parents' baptism certificates).

Please note that all those involved in parish ministries and groups must participate in volunteer screening, and some positions will require police checks.
