In response to Jesus' loving plea to spend time with him, Holy Cross Parish offers the faithful an opportunity to worship.


Infant baptisms are a welcoming celebration of our littlest ones into the Catholic Church, with the support of our parish community.

Baptism is the first sacrament of initiation, meaning your child receives the salvation of Jesus Christ and becomes a member of the Universal Church. This is not something to take lightly. To baptize your child is something that should be discerned and as the parents, you should be ready to raise your child according to Church teachings.

Please contact the parish office at 204-233-7367 or to set up a meeting with our parish priest to discuss baptism.


  1. Families (including Godparents) are required to complete a Baptismal Preparation Session. Families who take our course must be registered parishioners.  Families from other parishes must have their preparation course done at their home parish. A certificate or letter of completion from their parish priest will be required.
  2. Families need to approach the parish at least 3 months prior to the baptismal date.  Our Baptismal Preparation is a 3-step process which is completed in a two month period. More details can be given when you contact the parish office to book the date of the baptism.
  3. Godparents must be a baptized and practicing Catholic. We will also require a letter from their parish priest stating that they are a registered parishioner and attends mass regularly.
