Our Lady of Perpetual Help records all sacramental celebrations which take place in the parish. Our records span the life of the parish.
The parish is able to provide proof of sacraments celebrated here as well as provide letters to other churches for OLPH parishioners who wish to serve as godparents or sponsors.
Often, godparents or sponsors for confirmation are asked to provide a letter stating suitability to act in this role. Registered parishioners should download the appropriate form, read, sign, date and return it via email to the parish secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org . Include in your email the requesting parish’s contact information and mailing address.
