2 Congratulations Parents, You have begun to prepare your youth to receive the wonderful sacrament of Confirmation! Don t panic!! This journey of love and faith has been taking place in your family since the baptism of your child. You have been teaching your child right from wrong, the rules and guidelines of everyday living and God s place in your family life. As the primary educators of your children, you, along with your teen s sponsor, are called to be intimately involved in his/her catechesis for Confirmation (NCB #19). Through your guidance, with the help of a faith-filled sponsor, and the Confirmation Program here at St. Martin s, your youth will come to better understand and appreciate the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the beauty of the Catholic faith and God s grace in their life. Together, we will work to accomplish the following goals, as put forth by the Diocese of Orange: 1. To guide young people in the call to holiness by developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, by meeting Him in the Scriptures, in the life and teachings of the Catholic Church, and in their own daily prayer. 2. To nurture a desire in the young people for an understanding of an active participation in the sacramental life of the Church. 3. To empower young people to embrace the richness of diversity, to live the moral and theological virtues and to apply these virtues in their decision making. 4. To help young people develop a life of Christian service modeled on Jesus life. 5. To equip and empower youth to use their gifts and talents for the greater glory of God and His Church. Doesn t sound too hard, does it? Working together, I believe we can accomplish these goals. But it starts here, and right now! Please fill out ALL the required paperwork and return them to the parish office ASAP but no registrations processed past SEPTEMBER 14, (A late fee will be applied to late registrations.) On behalf of all involved with the Confirmation Program here at St. Martin s, WELCOME!! We look forward to making this journey of love and faith with your teen and with you.

15 Confirmation Sponsors Thank you for your willingness to mentor this member of our Confirmation program. The sponsor should be someone who knows and mentors the candidate on their morals and faith. Choosing a Sponsor The role of sponsor is much more than honorary; it is a lifelong commitment in this person s faith journey. The sponsor is to be involved in the youth s life and journey in many ways. The person chosen as a sponsor should be: A person that will pray with the candidate regularly. A real friend; someone the candidate can trust and confide in; someone who can be there when needed. Someone the candidate looks up to; someone after which he/she would like to model his/her life. A person whose experience as a Catholic is an invaluable source for helping youth make decisions in their life as a Catholic. A person who is interested in the candidate s preparation and who is willing to participate in special gatherings, meetings, and liturgical celebrations during the preparation program. A person whose relationship with the candidate will continue after the celebration of Confirmation. Qualifications for Sponsor Must be a confirmed, practicing Catholic who attends weekly Sunday and Holy Day masses regularly and participates in the Sacramental life of the Church. Must be sufficiently mature to fulfill their function as a sponsor (even though the minimum age is sixteen, we encourage someone older). Sponsor may be male or female and may be a Baptismal Godparent Married sponsors must be in a valid Catholic marriage. Must be a person who is an example and a witness of the Catholic faith in word and action. Must be friendly, trustworthy, and a good listener. Must be one who will attend liturgical celebrations, meetings, rehearsal, and Confirmation Day. Only one sponsor is required and cannot be a parent of the candidate. Expectations of the Sponsor Attend Mass with the candidate frequently. Attend meetings, workshops, training sessions, and days of prayer. Participate in liturgical celebrations, rehearsal, and Rites during the Confirmation process. Meet with candidate on a regular basis to encourage and assist the candidate to grow in knowledge, prayer, service, and worship.
