SACRAMENTAL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Sponsors
As Confirmation is deeply connected with Baptism, it is highly appropriate for a child’s Godparent/s to be the sponsor. The sponsor needs to be a confirmed Catholic, able to pray the Creed and Renewal of Baptismal Promises with conviction and be over 16 years old.
The sponsor’s name is entered into the Parish Confirmation Register.


Confirmation Name
The Rite of Confirmation makes no mention of the Confirmation name. However because Confirmation is the completion of Baptism, it is appropriate to use Baptismal name, that it the child’s first name.

This is a formal occasion. Please dress accordingly. Please note that thongs, jeans, football jerseys/shirts and bare midriffs are inappropriate dress for this special occasion. There is no need to wear white.
