Choosing a Sponsor

All candidates for Confirmation will choose a sponsor to journey with them in the Catholic faith. A sponsor is a person in your child’s life who understands and lives the teachings of our faith and can guide and mentor the candidate throughout his or her lifetime.

The diocesan requirements for a sponsor are the following:

*At least 16 years of age

*Has received the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation

*Attends Sunday Mass on a weekly basis

*If married, he or she  was married in the Catholic Church

*Is not the parent of the candidate

*Understands and accepts the responsibility of being a sponsor.
