Baptism 547222 1920

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

Receiving the Sacrament of Baptism

The Basilica’s pastoral team is happy to accompany your children in this important stage of their Christian life.


These are community baptisms (a maximum of four children per ceremony). Private baptisms can exceptionally be celebrated; call us for more information.


You and the priest agree on the date of the baptism and the preparatory meeting. The parents, as well as the godparents, must be present at this preparatory meeting. The baptism and meeting are offered in French or English. The godparents must be Catholic, baptized and confirmed.


For more information, please contact Daniela Staffa by e-mail at dstaffa@fabriquenotredame.ca or call 514-842-2925, extension 224.
