Baptism is the birth of a new life in Christ. Through baptism, one becomes the adopted son or daughter of God, a temple of the Holy Spirit, a member of Christ’s body, the Church.

The basilica's pastoral team is pleased to accompany your child through this important step in their life as a Christian.



Baptisms are celebrated on Sundays at 1:30 p.m. in the Notre-Dame-du-Sacré Cœur chapel. Celebrations are held in French on the first and third Sunday of every month, and in English on the second Sunday of the month. Multiple baptisms are celebrated during each celebration, up to a maximum of four (4) children per celebration. Private baptisms may exceptionally be celebrated; please inquire.

A priest will coordinate with you to set the date for the baptism and the preparatory meeting. The parents, as well as the godfather and the godmother, must attend this preparatory meeting. The celebration and the meeting are both offered in French or English. The godfather and godmother are Catholic, baptized and confirmed.
