SACRAMENTAL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Sponsors

 

As Confirmation is deeply connected with Baptism, it is highly appropriate for a childís Godparent to be the sponsor.  The sponsor needs to be Catholic and  able to pray the Creed and Renewal of Baptismal Promises with conviction.

 

The sponsorís name is entered into the Parish Confirmation Register. 

 

Confirmation Name

 

The Rite of Confirmation makes no mention of the Confirmation name however there is increasing support for the view that it is best to keep our Baptismal name.  However, if a child has found inspiration in the Saintly life of a particular person, they can choose to take that personís name for their confirmation name.
