- Complete all three forms from the Armidale Catholic Chancery website.
- The above information has to be sent to the Chancery: firstname.lastname@example.org, not to Saint Nicholas Parish.

It should be done in advance, at least three  weeks before the scheduled ministry to give time for verification.
