Sponsor Certificate Guidelines for Sacraments
Sponsor certificates are needed for each of the Godparents at a baptism. Our parish receives a number
of requests for Sponsor Certificates from people who have been asked to be a Godparent at a Baptism.
This certificate verifies that you are an active Catholic, a member of this parish and eligible for this
honor. Being a Godparent or a Sponsor is not just a family or social relationship, as important as these
may be. It is a profound spiritual responsibility, which entails witness and commitment, and, for this
reason, there are several requirements:

a) The Godparent/Sponsor must be at least sixteen years old.
b) He/she must have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Communion and Confirmation.
c) If married, the Sponsor/Godparent must have been married according to the laws of the Church.
To request a sponsor certificate or more information: Please call Rectory, at 860-623-2524
