SELECTING A SPONSOR
sponsor at confirmation witnesses the commitment to Christ that you are making. They present you to the Bishop and stand with you at the anointing. During your life, your sponsor should be available to help and encourage you. The person you select should be a mentor, someone who will assist you in your journey to mature membership in the Catholic faith. They should be a person who challenges you to be all God created you to be by developing your talents in your life of discipleship.
Your sponsor should be informed of current church teachings and trends in their parish. This enables the sponsor to receive a letter of recommendation from their pastor. The sponsor may be of either sex, but cannot be your parent. Please give the sponsor form to the person you have selected.
