Hi, guys —

The Catholic parish where I go to lost my record of Baptism.

  • How to get my baptismal certificate for marriage purposes?

They require the Marriage Contract of my parents and my Voter ID.

  • Is this necessary for getting my baptismal certificate?
  • Why do some churches suggest using an affidavit?

It's so confusing.

Please help!


  { If my parish has lost my Baptismal certificate, how do I get it back for marriage purposes? }

Fr. Jonathan replied:


Check with your diocese as to what the Church needs.

They may be following diocesan rules but they might be making this up.

My diocese would only require two affidavits.
