    • The Sacraments
    • Christian Witnesses and Saints

    Candidates must choose a Confirmation sponsor. This person is preferably a godparent chosen at Baptism or another person who meets the following conditions:

    • cannot be the candidate’s mother or father
    • be at least 16 years of age
    • must be Catholic who has received their First Communion and Confirmation
    • living a life in harmony with the faith

    The sponsor is to take care that the confirmed person behaves as a true witness of Christ and faithfully fulfills the obligations inherent in this sacrament.
