Everyone needs to do this!
The only exception is if your child was baptized here at St. Thomas...
Even if you previously submitted a copy of your child's baptismal certificate to St. Thomas for another sacrament or for another reason, we still need you to give us a copy. Canon Law says we must receive a copy from you within a certain proximity to your child receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. The only exception is if your child was baptized here at St. Thomas.
Alternatively, you can drop off a copy of the certificate here at the Parish Center. You can even contact the church at which your teen was baptized and ask them to send us a copy directly.
