The Chancery Office looks after all that is linked to the Code of Canon Law. It is also responsible for the archives which ensure the memory of our particular Church of Saint Boniface and it keeps copies of parish registers.

How to  obtain various certificates

The Chancery Office receives requests for baptism and marriage certificates, as well as for genealogical information. We recommend that individuals contact the parish directly for such requests. If you don’t know in which parish the sacrament was received, you will need to find this information in order to proceed.  It might well be available through the Centre du patrimoine of the St. Boniface Historical Society if the celebration happened before 1956.  The Chancery can only produce a certificate when a parish has been closed and its registers are in our vault.

For questions pertaining to archives, records, and certificates, please contact Jeannine, the Chancery adminstrative assistant  (see side bar).
