Baptism (Children and Adults)

Children usually are baptized soon after birth. Please call the Parish office to begin preparations for this Sacrament. Adults are usually initiated into the life of the Church after a period of preparation and instruction. This process begins with a conversation with the Parish Priest. If you or someone you know would like information about becoming a Catholic, call us at the Parish office at 613-389-2009.
