I would contact the parish that the baptizing priest was at – at the time of your baptism.  The parish should still have records of your baptism.  All you need to do is call the rectory and they will direct you to the person who handles all of that – it is usually never the priest anyways.

My fiance had to do a similar thing, his parents moved from the area when he was a baby and the parish had all that information.  It was not a problem at all.

Good luck!

Just call them up. They will probably just need your name and baptism date. Technically I think your other sacramental info should be on your baptism certificate, but mine was never put on there, and I know that has happened to other people too. So you should also ask about that when you call them.

I agree with the other ladies here – just make the call.  My mom didn’t even remember the name of the parish where I was baptised; I had to ask my cousin who still lives in Florida (where I was born).  No questions asked, they mailed the certificate right away at no cost to me.

How funny that the way that worked out! Luckily, it DID work out!

I called mine up and luckily they HAD received all the notations. Everything but my confirmation was there, however. The funny thing is we left that church RIGHT after my first communion to go to the parish I went to school at…. and then left that one for the one that was new and being held in my public high school! haha

Glad it worked out!
