Baptismal/Chrismation certificate
« on: June 25, 2008, 12:15:22 AM »
Our priest is on vacation, when he get back I will ask him the question too.

We recieved our certificates today. But, our daughter Witalu's name is spelled incorrectly (they ended it with an "o"), and both her and our son's birth city is incorrect (Brier rather than Seattle WA). Is this something that we will need to have remedied? Or does it really not matter?

Hm. Our priest just filled out a blank one at my baptism. But yes, I think it's important, and should be redone if it's not too much trouble (unless it has to be shipped over to Antioch to be amended ;D).

It came from California. And for some reason they mailed them to my 6 year old  ???

I didn't even get a certificate. I don't forsee it being a problem either way.

That's quite different! Mine was just filled out by my priest. And he spelled April wrong.

I was wrong, ours were mailed from New Jersey from; "The Self-Ruled Antiochian Christian Archdiocese of North America." They look like print outs with a pretty seal on them.

Give the AA a call and let them know that you got the certificate with the wrong spelling. The office will mail you a new certificate with the correct spelling.

PHONE: 201-871-1355 or 1356
