Sacrament of Confirmation Preparation for Adults
Are you an adult seeking to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation?
Congratulations! Through this Sacrament your life in the Spirit will be strengthen and enriched! The Archdiocese provides several opportunities per year for adult Catholics (18+) to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. Because this sacrament is so intimately united to the sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist, persons wishing to be confirmed must:
• Have been baptized
• Have already received their first Eucharist
• Have been through a process of preparation to receive the sacrament of Confirmation

The role of a sponsor is to assist the baptized to lead a Christian life and faithfully fulfill the obligations connected to it. They should be designated by the one to be confirmed, by the parents (as applicable), or in their absence, by the pastor. The requirements regarding sponsors for Confirmation are the same as for godparents in Baptism.
A sponsor must be a confirmed and practicing Catholic at least sixteen years of age
Not bound by any canonical penalty
Not be the parent or stepparent of the one being confirmed
“It is desirable that the godparent at Baptism also be the sponsor at
Confirmation...” to express more clearly the relationship between Baptism and Confirmation; and to make the duty and function of the sponsor more effective. Ideally, the sponsor should be available and involved with the candidate in a significant way to be able to offer an authentic example of lived Christian faith.
It is generally not advisable for a fiancé, boyfriend, or girlfriend, to serve as a sponsor since these could be temporary relationships.
So long as they meet all requirements, a spouse may serve as a sponsor.
The use of a saint’s name for the rite of Confirmation is optional. If appropriate, the confirmandi may use their baptismal name. They should understand that a saint’s name is chosen for the saint to be a model and intercessor.
