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.
