Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments through which Catholics pass in the process of their religious upbringing. According to Catholic doctrine, in this sacrament they are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and are strengthened in their Christian life.

Parish Policies for Baptism / Confirmation Sponsor Certificate

 Many of our parishioners request Certificates of Eligibility to act as Godparents at a Baptism or Sponsors for those receiving Confirmation. This is a great honor to be asked to do so.

It means that the young person or his/her parents, recognize you as someone who is an active and regular participant in the practice of the Catholic faith, and is willing and able to help pass on the faith to a young person.

In order for our Pastor to prepare such a certificate on your behalf, we ask that parishioners review and complete this form.

Please note, that only those who are registered (for at least 3 months) and are known in the parish, actively participating in it’s life, and if married, are in a valid, sacramental marriage, and is in regular attendance at Mass and support of the parish may apply. Anonymous parishioners and donors cannot be verified. Simply “being” a Catholic is not enough to serve in this important capacity. We strictly adhere to this policy.

*** Anyone requesting a Sponsor Certificate, must submit the form / request at least one month in advance of the proposed Sacramental date.***
