Submission of Sacramental Records
As your child prepares to receive the next Sacrament in their faith journey it is necessary that proof of preceding Sacraments be obtained and filed.
Individuals preparing to receive their Confirmation must give proof of Baptism and First Holy Communion.
Instructions for obtaining and submitting acceptable forms of proof are as follows:
For those that were parishioners of Saints Peter and Paul at the time of the Sacrament:
Please fill out this form and scan and email or mail to the Parish office Attn: Elizabeth Ertel 408 Hudson Street Hoboken, NJ 07030
Once the information is received the parish registers will be checked to confirm the Sacrament(s) have been completed.
For those that completed their Sacraments outside Saints Peter and Paul (including International)
Parents should reach out to the church(es) of Sacrament and obtain a new certificate, including notations. It should be dated within six months of the intended Sacrament, signed by the Pastor, and contain the official church seal.
The parish office of the church were the Sacrament was completed will know what you are talking about and will be able to guide you in obtaining a new certificate according to their guidelines.
Please note it must be dated 6 months from the intended Sacrament. It takes some time for international certificates to be obtained, if you are requesting a certificate from a parish outside of the U.S. You to start this process immediately.
We do NOT accept photocopies or emailed certificates. We also do NOT accept the “originals” from when the Sacrament was originally completed.
All submissions/paperwork MUST be submitted to Elizabeth Ertel or the parish office.
Your child will NOT be able to receive his or her Sacrament without proof of preceding Sacraments.
All candidates must complete the Confirmation Packet here.
