Baptism and Confirmation


Can a godparent also be a Confirmation sponsor?

Just wondering




yes, in fact it is preferable if the godparents are also Confirmation sponsors, and that is the way it is done for RCIA. A new sponsor should not be chosen unless there is a good reason.


Sure, and I have the notches on my missal to prove it.
