Each Candidate selects a Sponsor to walk with the through the journey of preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Sponsors are to set a positive example of Catholic Christian living and faith. With this in mind, the following guidelines have been established for Sponsors:
- Must be at least 16 years of age or older
- Must have received the Sacrament of Confirmation
- Must be an active, practicing Catholic in full communion with the church
Parents cannot be Sponsors for their own student as they are already on the journey as their primary catechist and example of Catholic Christian faith.
