Need to modify recent Child Blessing Certificate

Postby Disco-p40 » Tue Jan 19, 2010 9:28 am

I understand that the Child Blessing information does not get transmitted to HQ, but can I modify a certificate that was created recently? When I go to the Member record, under ordinances it doesn't show the blessing, it only has add baptism & confirmation.

Thanks

You can always simply print out a new certificate, by going to Reports/Forms > Certificates, then choosing Child Blessing Certificate. You'll have to fill in the information (but a lot of it is filled in automatically when you select the member). Then you print the certificate and have the bishop sign it.

Not only is it not transmitted to HQ, but it's not permanently saved in the MLS software either.

If you need to make corrections to the certificate, you must go to Reports and Forms -> Certificates, then choose Baby Blessing Certificate and fill out a new one. It's helpful to have the original so that you can reenter all the same information with the necessary corrections made.

Hope this helps.
