Choosing Your Sponsor:

The word “sponsor” comes from the Latin word spondeĢ„re, which means to "give assurance, promise solemnly"
By definition “sponsor” means:
1: one who presents a candidate for baptism or confirmation and undertakes responsibility for the person's religious education or spiritual welfare
2: one who assumes responsibility for some other person or thing
To be qualified to be chosen as a Confirmation sponsor an individual must:
* Be at least sixteen years old (by date of Confirmation)
* Have been initiated in the Catholic Church through the three sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist and be in good standing with the Church
* Display a visible commitment to living out the Catholic faith and have the ability and intention to carry out his/her responsibility as a spiritual guide in your life
Other considerations when selecting a Confirmation sponsor:
® A sponsor CANNOT be a parent of the one to be confirmed.
® Each Confirmation candidate may only choose ONE sponsor
® Because the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation are so closely connected, Church teaching states that it is “desirable that the godparent at Baptism also be the sponsor at Confirmation”, however the selection of a special sponsor is also permitted.
® IDEALLY – your sponsor should attend the practice and Confirmation with you!
Things to think about before you ask someone to be your sponsor:
* Your sponsor should be willing and able to participate in your formation for Confirmation.
* The person you choose as your sponsor should be someone that you admire and respect and who actively lives out the beliefs of our Catholic faith.
* Your sponsor should be someone that you trust and feel comfortable turning to for help, advice and guidance, especially in regard to your spiritual life.
* Your sponsor should be someone who, through his/her example, shows you what it means to be Catholic and who will take an active role in your preparation for Confirmation.
* After you receive the Sacrament of Confirmation your relationship with your sponsor DOES NOT END! You both are called to lead each other closer to God, to continue to grow in knowledge of your faith, and to challenge one another to lead lives of holiness and service.
* PRAY to God asking Him for guidance on who to choose as your sponsor.
