Baptismal Certificate Request

The sacrament of Baptism gives a person access to receive other sacraments.

Before receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession) and Eucharist (Holy Communion) for the first time or before receiving the sacrament of Confirmation or the Sacrament of Marriage a person’s official baptismal information is needed by the church administering the sacrament(s).   If a person is preparing to receive one of the above mentioned sacraments at a church other than one’s church of baptism, one’s church of baptism needs to send official baptism information to the church that is administering the particular sacrament.  

Contact your church of baptism to request a baptismal certificate.  

Below are sample baptismal certificate requests that you can modify (insert names, dates, etc) and email to your church of baptism.
