Sacramental Records Policy and Procedures

The Sacramental Records Policy and Procedures establishes a uniform protocol for the creation, maintenance, storage and preservation of permanent records pertaining to the sacramental life of the faithful of the Diocese of Phoenix. The sacrament (whether Confirmation, First Eucharist, Marriage or Holy Orders) is recorded in the register at the church in which the sacrament is celebrated.

Baptismal Record Requests

Sacramental record requests must be made through the parish at which the sacrament was administered.

If you do not know the name of the parish where you received the Sacrament of Baptism, but have done your due diligence in trying to locate the record, we can assist you in locating this record. Please complete the Baptismal Record Request Form and provide as much detail as possible.

You must include proof of identity (photo ID) along with the completed Baptismal Record Request Form.


The diocesan archives are NOT open to those engaged in genealogical or family history studies.
