Godparent/Confirmation Sponsor Requirements

In order for someone to act as a Godparent or a Sponsor for Confirmation, they must have received the sacraments of Baptism, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation.  If they are married, they must have been married in a Catholic Church or in a ceremony recognized by the Catholic Church.  Godparents and Sponsors must also obtain a letter of eligibility from their parishes indicating that they are attending Mass on a regular basis and that they fulfill all requirements.  If both Godparents are Catholic, they both must obtain letters.
