By now you should have:
  • returned the application form, fee, and a copy of your child's baptism certificate (or date of Baptised at St Joseph's).
  • placed your child's name on the 'group/location' list of your choice.
You will be contacted by the Group Leader confirming starting date, time and location of your child's group.

It is important that the parish office has your child's chosen Confirmation name as soon as possible so that the sashes can be embroidered in time.
ALSO, the sponsor's name, so that the certificates can be printed.
