Choosing a Sponsor and Patron Saint for Confirmation
WHO CAN BE MY SPONSOR?
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
