Request Sponsor Letter

Request Sponsor Letter for Baptism or Confirmation

Congratulations on being asked to be a Godparent or a Confirmation Sponsor!

The church where the candidate is being prepared will request that you obtain from your parish priest a Letter of Suitability. Use the link below to request a Sponsor Letter.


The Church requires that sponsors….

  1. Be mature enough to undertake this responsibility. (Over the age of 16)
  2. Have received all three Sacraments of Initiation themselves. (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist)
  3. Are Members of the Catholic Church and are canonically free to be a sponsor.

The following are canonically disqualified from serving as a sponsor:

  1. Those married “outside” the Church without dispensation.
  2. Divorced persons who have attempted to remarry outside the Church.
  3. Person who habitually miss weekend Mass.
  4. Parents who neglect the religious instructions of their children.
  5. Those who fail to fulfill their “Easter Duty” (that is, to receive Holy Communion during the Easter Season.)
  6. Those who have not been both baptized and confirmed.
  7. Those whose lives give public scandal.
