A sponsor is a person who is an open, honest, caring and committed Catholic. He or she must be willing to journey with you, as you grow in understanding our faith. Your choice in a sponsor should be someone mature and experienced in practicing their Catholic faith. Church guidelines state that a sponsor must be over the age of 16, confirmed, and if married they must be in a valid Catholic marriage. They need not be the same gender as the candidate, and they cannot be a parent of the candidate.

Note: If sponsor is NOT a registered member of St. John Vianney Parish, they must be able to provide a sponsor certificate from the parish in which they are registered and worship, confirming their
status as a practicing Catholic. They can do this by calling that parish and requesting a sponsor certificate.

All sponsor certificates are due in the Faith Formation Office no later than December 31, 2022.
