Confirmation Sponsors

What are the requirements of the Church for being a Confirmation sponsor?

  • A sponsor must be someone other than the parent of the one to be confirmed.
  • 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 may be a godparent if they are close to them, but more importantly, it should be a person they can talk to about their faith and that they will be able to meet with them several times during the year.
  • 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.
  • A sponsor must be a practicing Catholic, registered in a parish, who regularly attends Mass on Sundays and Holy Days and receives the Holy Eucharist.
  • A sponsor must obtain a Certificate of Eligibility from their Parish Church. The certificate can be sent via fax to: St. Rose of Lima Church - Att: Annie Molleda for (please put name of Confirmation Candidate) Fax # 305-751-5034
