The Guidelines for Sacramental Records were developed to assist parish personnel with the creation, recording and maintenance of official records. Proper care must be maintained to ensure the validity of official Church Records. Instructions are included addressing special circumstances which may surround the reception of a sacrament.
Parishes may find it necessary to recreate Sacramental Records which are unavailable to due to various circumstances. A guideline along with necessary witness testimonial documents are available to aid with the reconstruction and proper recording of these records.
