Confirmation Sponsor’s Role?
Q. I have been asked to be a sponsor for a neighbor’s daughter at her confirmation. This will be a first for me. What is my role and what is expected of me?
C.L., via e-mail
A. Here is a reply from Father Francis Hoffman, J.C.D.:
It is an honor and a privilege to act as a sponsor at confirmation. It also brings a special responsibility to support that young woman with your good example and daily prayer, so that she might grow to be strong in the faith, with a heart filled with generous sentiments of service to God and others.
Don’t let this event just be a social occasion; it has deeper spiritual meaning.
