Confirmation sponsor
Question from Anonymous on 05-15-2013:

Is it possible to have two confirmation sponsors? One being a relative, the other being the pastor? My child would really like to have both.

Answer by Catholic Answers on 05-17-2013:


Canon law stipulates that the preferred person to be a confirmation sponsor is the child's godparent (canon 893). It is implied in canon law, by virtue of the fact that the singular is consistently used when speaking of the confirmation sponsor (canons 892893), that one confirmation sponsor is expected and sufficient.
