Can I get married if I have not been confirmed?
Yes, but we would like to help you receive this sacrament prior to your wedding so you are a fully initiated Catholic.
Do I need a sponsor?
Yes. Like a godparent, the sponsor must be a practicing Catholic over 16 years of age who has received Baptism, Confirmation, and First Eucharist. This person may be asked to attend preparation classes with you. The sponsor can be a different person than the one chosen as the godparent.
I was confirmed in another faith and I want to become Catholic. Do I have to be re-confirmed?
No. We recognize the sacraments you received in most other faiths. You will be asked to “make a profession of faith” indicating that you believe what the Catholic Church teaches.
