What are the requirements of the Church for being a Confirmation sponsor?

  • A sponsor must be someone other than the parent of the one to be confirmed.

  • A sponsor must have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.

  • A sponsor must be at least 16 years of age and may be male or female regardless of the sex of the candidate.

  • A sponsor must be leading a life in harmony with the faith and the role to be undertaken; therefore, if married, must be married in the Church and if single, must be striving to live a chaste life and therefore cannot be living with a person outside of marriage.

  • A sponsor must be a practicing Catholic, registered in a parish, who regularly attends Mass on Sundays and Holy Days and receives the Holy Eucharist.

**For Confirmation, only one sponsor is listed on the certificate & in the parish records.

Some of the responsibilities of a sponsor to the confirmed after confirmation:

  • Maintain regular contact with the confirmed by phone, email. Also, sending a card on the anniversary of his/her confirmation.

  • Pray regularly for the confirmed and when possible pray with him/her.

  • Help the confirmed to learn how to experience a deeper prayer life (e.g. Eucharistic adoration).

  • Encourage participation in the life of the Church, especially through his/her parish.

  • Continue ongoing catechesis (e.g., sharing good books) and be available for questions.

  • Help the confirmed to understand how to bear witness to Christ in the world and to fulfill his/her baptismal promises faithfully through the Holy Spirit.

Mentor & Student Assignments

1) Write a summary about what you and your mentor discussed regarding the assignment

2) Turn in the summary and the assignment sheet on or before the due date. Thank you!
