Sacramental Certificates

The Data Protection Act places restrictions on who has a right to access the information in our sacramental registers. From time to time, many people find it necessary to request a copy of a Certificate of Baptism, or a record of their Confirmation or Marriage in Church. Most commonly, this will be in connection with a  marriage or a school application.

In order to comply with the requirements of the Data  Protection Act, all such requests need to be made in writing and certificates can only be issued to those named on the record – for instance, the person who was baptised, or, in the case of someone under the age of 16, their  parent or guardian.

As requests need to be signed and a written record retained of all requests for access to our sacramental registers, we are unable to accept requests by telephone or e-mail.

To request a certificate confirming entry in one of the church registers, please download the form below and post it to St. Bernadette’s Parish, 28 Willowbank Park, Belfast BT6 0LL or leave it in the Sacristy at Mass times. Forms are also available from the Sacristy, the Lourdes Chapel porch, and in the Parish Centre.
