EWTN Catholic Q&A
Confirmation Candidate
Question from Stephanie on 04-15-2013:

While reading the Baltimore Catechism, I came across where it discusses Confirmation. It says:

"The candidate for Confirmation should have a sponsor of his own sex who was not his godparent in Baptism."

My godmother was my Confirmation candidate though...Does that make the sacrament invalid in any way?

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 08-18-2013:

Dear Stephanie,

The sacrament is still valid.

Dr. Geraghty
