If the Candidate was NOT baptized at Good Samaritan, Our Lady of Peace, St. John the Baptist, or Saints John & Paul Parish, we will need a recently dated copy of the Baptismal Certificate (within the past 6 months, complete with all notations for prior sacraments). All Candidates must have received Baptism and First Communion prior to Confirmation. To obtain this, simply call the church of Baptism and request an updated Baptismal Certificate with notations. You can have them mail it directly to:
Saints John & Paul Parish
Attn: Clare Giuffre
2586 Wexford Bayne Road
Sewickley, PA 15143
If your candidate was baptized in a Catholic parish that has been closed or has been combined during the On Mission process (i.e. St. Alexis is now St. Aidan), you will need to contact Dennis Wodzinski (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Diocesan Archives Office to obtain your records. This may take several weeks, so please begin this process ASAP.
If your candidate was baptized in another Christian Denomination and converted to Catholicism, you will need to contact the parish where your candidate made a Profession of Faith to obtain a verification form from them, not from the church of Baptism.
