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.

Mentor & Student Assignments
The following assignments should be completed WITH your sponsor/mentor for Confirmation. We recommend completing each one separately as they are due to give yourself and your mentor time to discuss. After meeting with your mentor, the student should:
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!
