There are three types of parish records available for Saint-Raymond: baptism, marriage, and burial. See the links at the bottom of the page for indexes.
Saint-Raymond's records are part of the Drouin Collection, which can be accessed through subscription sites like Ancestry.com or the Programme de Recherche en Démographie Historique. FamilySearch has the images, but they are not indexed. Here is a link to the first page of the 1844 parish book on FamilySearch.
All of the records are in French and are written in narrative form. The following indexes were compiled by Sarah Heiney. One of the goals of the Saint-Raymond project is to create or match profiles for every single person found in these records.
Here is a full-written out transcription of the first baptism record:

Saint-Raymond began recording parish records in October 1844, but the community existed before then. Because of this, Saint-Raymond records prior to 1845 can sometimes be found in neighboring towns. There are many pre-1845 records for Saint-Raymond residents in the town of Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier. For records beginning in October 1844 and later, use the Saint-Raymond links.
