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

After months of careful evaluation and consideration of many risks that COVID-19 carries, the Religious Education department at St. Rose of Lima parish, under the guidance of Fr. George Packuvetthara, have decided that in order to protect the physical health of all our catechetical team, students and parents, we will provide CCD classes, RCIA and RCIC via ZOOM from September 2020 until further notice.
