We will not accept any late paperwork, so please plan accordingly. Meeting paperwork deadlines is the candidate's responsibility, and missing deadlines could seriously delay your ordination process. Once you have uploaded all of the required paperwork and updated your information, please e-mail me with your desire to appear before DCOM at the next meeting.
