Obtaining Your Sacramental Record
If you need a copy of your own sacramental record, or your minor child’s, please contact the parish where the sacrament was received or celebrated. With a few exceptions, it is the parish that keeps its own baptism, confirmation, marriage and burial registers. To find the contact information of churches, please click on the parish locator.
If the parish has closed, you will find the location of the registers here: Registers of Closed, Merged, or Twinned Parishes.
Canadian Armed Forces
For sacraments conferred in a Canadian Armed Forces chapel, it is the Roman Catholic Military Ordinariate of Canada that keeps the sacramental registers regardless as to the location of the chapel and whether it is open or closed.

If you don’t recall the name of the church, we can certainly help by performing a search. Please fill out the form linked below, save and send as an attachment to: email@example.com
If the sacrament was conferred in a church in another diocese or outside of Canada you will need to contact them yourself.
