Year I Preparation youth are to begin thinking about choosing a sponsor who will stand up with and for them at Confirmation.
Sponsors need to be 16 years of age or older; have been baptized and confirmed in the Catholic Church; receive Eucharist and Reconciliation regularly; be willing to assist youth in their preparation and provide ongoing spiritual support and direction after Confirmation. A parent cannot be a sponsor.
Once youth has prayerfully selected a sponsor a Sponsor Form is completed.
If the sponsor is not a member of St. Michael Parish, a Sponsor Eligibility Form is completed by the sponsor's parish. If the sponsor is a member of St. Michael parish this form does not need to be completed.
Sponsor forms are due to the religious education office no later than October 2014.
