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.
