5.G.11 Records Pertaining to Personal Ordinariate (Anglicanorum Coetibus)

1. If a priest or deacon baptizes the child of parents or guardians who belong to the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter (cf. Anglicanorum coetibus):

    a. in addition to the usual recording of date, names, etc., the following notation is to be made in the baptismal registry: "enrolled by baptism into the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter."    

b. the chancery of the Personal Ordinariate is to be notified of all the details.

2. When the parish of baptism or reception into full communion or the place of archives receives notification by means of an authentic document that a Catholic has become enrolled into the Personal Ordinariate, a notation is to be made in the registry that includes the date of enrollment and the statement "enrolled into the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter." If a protocol number appears on the letter of notation from the Ordinariate, it is to be recorded as well.

3. If marriage involves a member of the Personal Ordinariate, notation is to be made of that person's membership.

4. These norms are to be observed with suitable adjustment for any other Personal Ordinariates erected under the auspices of Anglicanorum coetibus.

5. In other cases or when there is uncertainly about how to proceed, the chancellor should be consulted about any proper inscriptions.
