Sponsor Registration

St. Thomas More Teen Confirmation Program

Sponsors must be 16+ years old, Catholics in good standing, and have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. Parents cannot sponsor their own teens. Sponsors must attend two Sponsor sessions with their Candidates (Oct. 8th and Nov. 5th), as well as the Confirmation Mass rehearsal and the Confirmation Mass (TBA). If Sponsors cannot make these for reasons such as poor health or living out-of-state, proxies may be sent in their place so long as they meet the same requirements as the Sponsor and the Youth Minister is notified.

I understand that as a Sponsor, I must turn in a recently printed copy of my Baptismal certificate (complete with notations showing my First Communion and Confirmation) to the St. Thomas More Youth Ministry Office by Dec. 4, 2016. If I received Baptism at St. Thomas More Parish, I agree to notify the Youth Minister via e-mail so my records can be checked (rebeccah@stmp.org). I understand that failure to submit my certificate will cause me to be ineligible as a Sponsor and may prevent my Candidate from receiving Confirmation. I agree to contact the Youth Minister with any questions within enough time to complete this requirement.
I agree

I am aware that as a Sponsor, I have a responsibility to model the faith to my Candidate through such things as regular reception of the Sacraments, adhering to the teachings of the Catholic Church, and witnessing to Christ through the way I live my life. I will read the Sponsor Guide and consider how best to walk with my Candidate on this journey. I commit to attending the Sponsor sessions on Oct. 23rd and Dec. 4th, the Confirmation rehearsal, and the Confirmation Mass. If I am unable to attend any of these for a serious reason, I commit to notifying the Youth Minister ahead of time and making sure that my Candidate has an appropriate proxy to accompany them.
I agree
