Jewish baptism?? #hungary

My uncle, Arthur Greenwald, left a diary of a visit to Vienna in 1931. He
was born, he says, on Engebgesse street, changed to Giraidesse. He has a
strange sentence that reads: "A policeman suggested I go to the very old
church in the district, #VI called Mariahoff, for information as to house
number AS I WAS PROBABLY BAPTISED THERE"
Now I cannot tell whether that was the assumption of the policeman, or my
uncle's. To the best of my knowledge the family was always Jewish and he is
buried in a Jewish cemetery (I attended his burial). Any thoughts?
