Access to Sacramental Records
For privacy protection, you may request the following:
- your own record
- your child’s record if they are under the age of 18
- records of family sacraments that occurred 90 years before the current year, provided the subject of inquiry is deceased. Proof of death may be required.
You may not request the records of living family members, including your child over the age of 18. They will need to make these requests personally.
