DEFINITION OF A “BAPTISED CATHOLIC”A “Baptised Catholic” is one who has been baptised into full communion (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church, 837) with the Catholic Church by the Rites of Baptism of one of the various ritual Churches in communion with the See of Rome (i.e. Latin Rite, Byzantine Rite, Coptic, Syriac, etc, Cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1203). Written evidence of this baptism can be obtained by recourse to the Baptismal Registers of the Church in which the baptism took place (Cf.Code of Canon Law, 877 & 878) OR has been validly baptised in a separated ecclesial community and subsequently received into full communion with the Catholic Church by the Right of Reception of Baptised Christians into the Full Communion of the Catholic Church. Written evidence of their baptism and reception into full communion with the Catholic Church can be obtained by recourse to the Register of Receptions, or in some cases, a sub-section of the Baptismal Registers of the Church in which the Rite of Reception took place (Cf. Rite of Christian Initiation, 399).
WRITTEN EVIDENCE OF BAPTISM
The Board of Directors of the Bishop Cleary Catholic Multi Academy Company will require written evidence in the form of a Certificate of Baptism or Certificate of Reception before applications for Academy places can be considered for categories of ‘Baptised Catholics’. A Certificate of Baptism or Reception is to include: the full name, date of birth, date of baptism or reception, and parent(s) name(s). The certificate must also show that it is copied from the records kept by the place of baptism or reception.
Those who would have difficulty obtaining written evidence of baptism for a good reason may still be considered as baptised Catholics, but only after they have been referred to their Parish Priest who, after consulting the Vicar General, will decide how the question of baptism is to be resolved and how written evidence is to be produced in accordance with the Law of the Church. Those who would be considered to have good reason for not obtaining written evidence would include those who cannot contact the place of baptism due to persecution or fear, the destruction of the church and the original records, or where baptism was administered validly but not in the Parish church whererecords are kept.
