Data Protection


​The new European Data Protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), was introduced on 25th May 2018.  This new law applies to any organisation, including our parish that manages and processes people’s personal information.  We are now working on ways of ensuring that what we do with your information is compliant with this new law.  It is a work in progress and over the next few months we will keep you informed through the parish website and in the newsletter as policies are put in place.

To obtain Baptism, Confirmation and Marriage Certificates, please contact the Parish Office.

Under our GDPR Policy a request for Baptism certs must be accompanied by a completed form either by the adult person requesting his or her own Baptism cert or by the parent requesting a son or daughter’s Baptism certificate.  Parents of children preparing for First Communion and for Confirmation will need to complete the consent form when requesting as is required, their child’s certification of Baptism.  This applies to every parish in the Diocese.

The Ferrybank Parish Data Protection Policy can be found here.

Information needed: The person’s name & address and date of birth and the purpose for which the certificate is required.  Enclose a fee of €5 plus S.A.E.

For baptismal certificate please give names of parents (including mother’s maiden name) and date of birth and baptism. For marriage certificates: please indicate names of both parties & date of marriage
