PARENTAL COMMITMENT and CONSENT

  1. Ensuring your child attends weekly Masses.
  2. Commitment to St. David's Parish HOME INSTRUCTION PROGRAM for First Reconciliation and First Communion.  We will provide parents with a home instruction program that allows parent and child to learn together and discuss our faith.
  3. Commitment to attend meetings as outlined in the Initial Meeting.   Both parents must sign consent forms for the Parish to administer sacraments.  Where consent of one or both parents is not available, the parish will require legal documents verifying legal guardianship, etc.

 

BAPTISM CERTIFICATE:

  To prepare to register your child for these sacraments, you will require a valid copy of your child's Baptism Certificate.  This must be attached to    the registration even if your child was baptized at St. David’s Parish.   It is recommended that you locate this certificate and prepare it for registration.  If you cannot locate it, then you will need to contact the parish of your child's baptism to request a replacement. 

EMAIL ADDRESS:

 Parents will need to provide us with a valid email as we often communicate through emails.
