Sacramental Records

(Baptismal Certificates, Confirmation Certificates and First Comunion Certificates)

The release of sacramental records is limited and a Sacramental Record request form is required.


Sacramental Record Request


Here is the policy of the Archdiocese of Detroit for access to sacramental records:

  • While every individual has a right to a certificate of his or her own sacramental record, no one, with the exception of a parent or guardian asking for the record of a minor child, has the right to another person’s record.
  • If someone has power of attorney for another adult, they may request a certificate, but must show the parish personnel the power of attorney before the certificate is prepared.
  • The only other valid requests would be from another Catholic parish for sacramental reasons or from a Catholic tribunal for annulment reasons. No one else may receive a copy of the sacramental certificate.

Call or e-mail Dorothy Nazar in the parish offices at 586-791-3930 ext. 315 or email her at nazard@stthecla.com if you have questions or need more information.
