Sponsor Qualifications and Responsibilities

It is never too early in the process to have candidates for Confirmation begin thinking about the names they will take at Confirmation. At the end of the session, provide the young people with books or other resources that offer good summaries of the lives of the saints. You may also want to have the young people visit Catholic websites that offer brief summaries of saints’ lives. Ask the young people to look for saints that they feel connected to, share an experience with, or whose example they want to follow.
