So, DS1 needs a sponsor for his Confirmation.Sponsors must be able to recieve communion.Every one I could have asked (ie Godparents) arent' able to recieve communion, due to divorce, etc.I'm stuck as to what to do, short of grabbing a virtual stranger in church. Any ideas?
When DC were confirmed the church provided the sponsors, we weren't actually asked if we wanted anyone else.
how strict is your church if a divorcee can't receive communion?![ignorant Methodist emoticon]is there someone in the church (stewrad, sunday school leader etc) you could ask?or there's nothing saying it can't be a relative - aunts? uncles? gps?
It can be anyone over 16 who can take communion, (apart form parents).I don't usually talk to anyone at church so don't feel I could randomly ask them.I'll see what the priest sugests.
My sponsor was the person who run the confirmation class. I didn't choose him.I think liturgically, it is the person who presents candidates to the bishop.
I asked ds's teacher - he was very pleased and proud that wed asked him.I too was deliberately searched out to be a sponsor for a particular wild little boy and his own grandma said to me before the service if he tries to get away 'hold on tight!!'I think one of the older ladies in church would be thrilled to be asked.
I think I will ask DS's teacher. She is co ordinationg the whole thing, so will be there anyway, I presume.LOL at the wild boy - I can imagine DS1 doing a runner.
