Confirmation is a Catholic sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. Like Baptism and Eucharist, it is a Sacrament of Initiation for Catholics and a sacrament of faith in God’s fidelity to us.
Church law requires that before a Sacrament is administered, the priest must have proof of Baptism. Mary Our Queen requires proper proof before a child is able to celebrate the sacraments
Sponsors for Confirmation must be at least 16 years of age, must be confirmed themselves, and a Catholic in good standing. The MOQ Confirmation Program requires a statement from the sponsor stating that they accept the role of sponsor – to be a responsible role model and example of faith – a person committed to their Catholic faith; one who attends and participates in Sunday Mass, receiving the Eucharist as often as possible and Reconciliation as necessary, not married outside the church or otherwise compromised in their own sacramental life; a person witnessing to the values of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, being open to the Word of God as revealed in sacred scripture and taught by the Church, and by seeking to be a service to others for love of Him.
