Choosing a Sponsor and Patron Saint for Confirmation


A Practising Roman Catholic

Attends Mass regularly on Sundays

Baptised and Confirmed

Over 16 years of age

Not your own mother or father

The Church asks sponsors to become actively involved in the 

Spiritual growth of those who they are sponsoring by:

  • Giving an example of Catholic living
  • Encouraging them to be faithful in their

Membership of the Church

  • Praying for them

This means that a sponsor should be a person who is in regular contact and is involved in the life of the person who is to be confirmed. In this way continuing support and encouragement can be given.

You should only accept the invitation to be a sponsor if you are sincerely prepared to accept these responsibilities
