Confirmation Sponsor Form

 

The role of sponsor is an important one for the sacrament of Confirmation. The Church sees the sponsor as a fully-initiated Catholic who supports the one receiving the sacrament with example and instruction. Because of the seriousness of this ministry, the Church has the following requirements:

  • The sponsor must be a fully-initiated member of the Catholic Church through Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.
  •  The sponsor must be at least sixteen (16) years of age.
  • The sponsor must have an active life of faith in the Church and provide good example.
    •  Someone married outside the Church is not able to receive Communion and is not able to be a sponsor.
    •  Also, a Catholic who has left the Church is not able to be a sponsor.
    • Therefore, a Catholic who has left the Catholic Church cannot be a sponsor if they join another Christian communion.
  • The sponsor cannot be either parent.
