I lost my confirmation certificate from the catholic church, can I get a new one and how?

I need the certificate because someone asked me to be their godmother for the event and they want proof I did my confirmation at her school. I only, have proof that I did my communion.

  1. All you need to do is contact the church/parish or Diocese where you were confirmed & supply them with your personal information. Request a copy of your confirmation certificate & they generally graciously comply. Good luck!

  2. Confirmation Certificate

    1. The Church is universal, so presenting your sacramental record is required in EVERY parish, not just certain ones. 2. If you’ve simply lost your certificates, but you were indeed confirmed in a Catholic parish, all you need to do is contact that parish and ask them to send a copy to the parish where you wish to be married. 3. If you and your fiance were only baptized and never received confirmation or Holy Communion, you’ll have to enroll in classes to be prepared for those sacraments before you can receive the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony (which also requires preparation of at least six months). 4. It’s never too late!

  5. Call the parish you were confirmed at and they should be able to send you another copy. It may take a few weeks to a month if you are not in the same town.

  6. Ask your Bishop surely their is a back up copy some place in the Vatican archives the Catholic church has a habbit of being orginised like that.

  7. The diocese in which you were confirmed has a copy in their records. Call the Chancery Office and explain the problem. they’ll be happy to supply a copy.

  8. Talk to the parish priest of the parish where you were confirmed it should be in the records.

  9. Call the parish and they will send you a copy.

  10. its been 37 years ago will they keep the records that long at that church
