Your child's initiation into the Catholic faith begins with Baptism, will be completed with their Confirmation, and will culminate in their joining the entire Christian community at the Table of the Eucharist. This entire faith journey from the very start, is a solemn responsibility taken on by you, the parents, and shared by your faith community here at Christ the King. Working together, we can ensure that your family and ours will grow together to become a source of life, inspiration, hope and support.
The welcoming of a new member to our faith community is a joyous time for everyone. At Christ the King we look forward to each and every Baptism celebrated in our parish. In planning to celebrate such a momentous occasion at Christ the King, the following points should be helpful;
Baptism Preparation classes are a must for every parent requesting the baptism of their child (yes even if it's your fourth!). Have you gone through several prep. classes in the past? We would love to have someone with your expertise to help lead the next one!
Christ the King is excited to celebrate your child’s baptism!
At our parish we offer three baptism preparation sessions titled “REBORN” in the fall, winter and spring. Preparation is required prior to the celebration of the Sacrament. Godparents may attend the preparation session, but are not required to. You may attend the preparation classes before the birth of your child. Please contact the parish office @ 306-586-9020 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register!

"Holy 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 sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission..." -The Catechism of the Catholic Church #1213
Father Robert Barron of Word on Fire Ministries explains how baptism opens the door to life with God, laying an essential, life-long spiritual foundation for us and for our children.
