If you’re here because a young person asked you to be their sponsor, how awesome! You are special! Here you will find information on how to be the best sponsor you can be for the young person who looks up to you!
Prerequisites for Sponsors:
- To take on the function of sponsor, a person must have the aptitude and intention of fulfilling this function and must have completed the sixteenth year of age, unless the pastor or minister has granted an exception for a just cause.
- The sponsor/godparent should be a fully initiated Catholic (having received Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) who leads a life of faith, is not bound by any canonical penalty, and is not the father or mother of the one to be confirmed.
Sponsors need to turn in a Sponsor Certificate. If they are from another parish they need to get a priest from that parish to sign the form and they should have the parish seal put on the bottom of the form!
