If your child was baptized at Holy Name Parish, please complete the Baptism information on the registration form.  A copy of the Baptism Certificate is not required.  However, if your child was baptized elsewhere we will need a copy of the Baptism Certificate.  The copy can accompany your registration form or be faxed to Holy Name at 403-2499952, attention of the Sacramental Coordinator.  (If the Baptism Certificate is not in English, please hand in a translation with the copy.  Please note that we do not require a certified translation.)

A $30.00 sacrament fee, covering the cost of materials will be collected at the Parent Meeting. Payable in cash or cheque to Holy Name Church.

Parent Volunteers are needed to help with supervision during the Confirmation classes.  The Calgary Catholic Diocese requires volunteers to be officially screened prior to working with children.  You will need to complete the required volunteer screening forms.  If you are able to assist as a classroom volunteer, please contact the Parish office at (403) 249-7764.
