To obtain a copy of your Baptismal Certificate
Any member of the Christian faithful has a right to obtain a certificate of a sacrament received. Only that person, or the parents of a minor, or a legal guardian have this right. Certificates may also be released to another Catholic Church where the person is receiving a new sacrament. Requests for certificates should be submitted in writing and must bear the signature of the person whose certificate is being requested. Once a request is processed, the individual requesting a copy of his or her certificate may pick it up in person at the Cathedral Rectory with a valid ID. The certificate may also be mailed directly to the requestor’s home parish. No information from sacramental registers may be provided by telephone.
To request sacramental records, download, complete, and mail or scan and email this form to:
239 Selby Ave
Saint Paul, MN 55102
Requests are processed in the order received. The normal processing time is two weeks.
The sacrament of Baptism is normally celebrated for our parishioners on Sundays, after the noon Mass. Parents must attend a preparation class in advance. To register, call Marybeth Gaetano at 651.357.1325. Print a registration form for infant Baptism.
First Reconciliation, First Communion, & Confirmation

Sacrament of Matrimony
To be married at the Cathedral of Saint Paul, one or both persons of the engaged couple must be a practicing Catholic and registered at a parish. To inquire about celebrating a wedding at the Cathedral, call Deacon Jim Meyer at 651.357.1353. Please review our wedding policy.
Pastoral Care Visits to the Sick and Homebound
If you know of any parish member or family member who is homebound, hospitalized, and in need of a pastoral care visit and Holy Communion from one of our Cathedral Priests, Deacons or Befrienders, call Deacon Jim Meyer at 651.357.1353 with the name and contact information of the person. Today’s privacy laws do not permit hospitals to contact churches unless specifically requested. We are made aware of it only when the individual or their friends or family contact us.
