Church Record Sunday: Finding the Current Contact Information for a Parish

I’m trying to determine the parentage of a child born in 1817. Since his civil birth registration only lists his mother, I’m hoping that his baptismal record might have a few more details… But the parish registries on FamilySearch end before his birth. I’ll need to get the record from the church itself. But how do I contact the church?

It’s pretty easy actually. The Archdiocese has a parish directory sorted by town name. Click on the commune for the parish contact information, including emails. Now to see if they can provide the record for me.
