Our parish community welcomes the opportunity to share with you the celebration of your child’s baptism.

Download the application form here:  Baptism Registration Form 2023-2024

Baptism Preparation is a pre-requisite for all parents seeking to baptize their children. (Both Mother and Father must participate, and Godparents are also encouraged.) Please contact the parish office two to three months prior to the baptism of your child.

The documents we need with your application form are as follows:

  • A copy of the child’s birth certificate
  • Proof of baptism of one of the child’s parents, such as a baptism certificate or a confirmation certificate
  • Proof of baptism of one of the child’s godparents, again such as a baptism certificate or a confirmation certificate. (You only need one godparent/sponsor, a practising Catholic. You may have two godparents – one male and one female – the second should be baptized Christian but does not have to be Catholic, that sponsor we call a Christian witness.)
  • You can scan the documents and email them to us at  info@olph.ca. We’ll print them out here and attach them to the application for baptism form.
