Each Candidate will be selecting a Confirmation sponsor. The role of a Confirmation Sponsor is to guide and help youth grow in their Catholic faith. For this reason, a Confirmation sponsor should fulfill the following requirements:
- Be a fully initiated, practicing Catholic (someone who has received Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation)
- Be at least 16 years of age
- If married, married in the Catholic Church
Also, the Confirmation sponsor cannot be the youth's parent.
Below is a form that the sponsor should fill out.
Confirmation Sponsor Covenant (English)

Confirmation Sponsor forms need to be submitted to your youth's Confirmation teacher by November 6, 2016. Youth will be reminded during Confirmation L1FT meetings about turning in their sponsor form.
If you have any questions about sponsors, please contact Mariangela Byrne at: 214.357.8549.
