Christ the King is excited to celebrate your child’s baptism!
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 Holy Communion.
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!
At our parish we offer three separate baptism preparation courses 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 also attend the preparation classes before the birth of your child.
Please contact the parish office @ 306-586-9020 or email@example.com to register!

1. To be a Godparent a person must:
- be at least 16 years of age
- be a Catholic who has been confirmed and already received the most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist.
- he/she must attend Mass and receive the Eucharist on a regular weekly basis and lead a life of faith in keeping with the function to be taken on.
if married, he/she must have been married in the Catholic church.
not be the father or mother of the one to be baptized.
2. A person may only have one or two godparents; if two are chosen, they must be male and female.
3. A baptized person who belongs to a non-Catholic (ecclesial) Christian community may be admitted only as a "Christian Witness" (not a godparent), provided that there is at least one Roman Catholic godparent who fulfills the above criteria. A non-baptized person cannot be a Christian Witness.
"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.
