NOTIFICATION OF CONFIRMATION NAME OF CONFIRMATION STUDENT: _________________________________________ CHURCH OF BAPTISM: _____________________________________________________ ADDRESS of Church of Baptism:______________________________________________ CITY, PROVINCE:______________________________________________ COUNTRY, POSTAL CODE:____________________________________________ Date of Baptism: Month/Day/Year _______________________________________ For office use only: Confirmed on ___________, 2013 at St. Ambrose Church, Cambridge, Ontario Choosing a Confirmation Sponsor: Sponsors at Confirmation represent the believing Christian Community. Therefore, it is required that they be a practicing Catholic in good standing with the Church, who have themselves received the Sacraments of Initiation, which are Baptism, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation and have reached the age of 16. If they are married, they must have been validly married in the Church. The Code of Canon Law states they must lead... .“a life in harmony with faith and the role to be undertaken.. .and will help the baptized to lead a Christian life in harmony with Baptism, and to fulfill faithfully the obligations connected with it.” Remember that being a "Sponsor" at a Sacrament makes you a proper representative of the Catholic Church. If someone does not go to Mass or practice their Catholic faith, the role of representative would be inappropriate for them. How could someone ever represent a group in which they no longer participate? Candidates can avoid hurting the feelings of family and friends by not choosing a person who cannot fulfill these basic requirements for a godparent or sponsor. Name of Sponsor: ___________________________________ (please print) I verify that my sponsor is a Baptized and Confirmed Roman Catholic who is a good representative of the Catholic faith.
