For any person seeking to obtain a Sacramental Record from St. James Catholic Church:
In order to maintain confidentiality and security to your sacramental records, we require a Photo ID to confirm the validity of your request. The requesting person must also produce a picture ID before the certificate will be handed over. If you are unable to come into the parish because of distance, you may go to your local parish and use a form, if available. If one is not available, then you will need to give written permission to that parish that they may request a copy of the certificate or record in question. In the request, the names of parents, including the maiden name of the mother, the date of birth, and other pertinent information must be given. Requests will not be accepted via mail, e-mail, fax, telephone, or internet.
As strange as it may seem, there can be quite of bit of fraud accomplished with sacramental records. We only want to protect your information. These rules are designed to protect the legal rights and the exercise of responsibilities of all concerned, both civilly and canonically.
