My fiance decided last year to join the church. I was very happy, especially because I never pushed, or asked. He observed me going to church and parish events for 2 years and eventually asked to join me and little by little became more interested. I was very happy when we decided to look into RCIA, a month following his decision he proposed to me. (I am divorced and am in the annulment process). We each have full custody of our children (1 each) and live separately.
Anyway, I give you this history to help you understand how excited I was for him to see if I could be his sponsor. Of course! Why not! How great! Now…as I wrote the parishes I grew up in, I was able to find record of my communion but not my confirmation. I was raised LDS and Catholic (at the same time from age 11 to 17 only). I remember a large parental fight involving my confirmation and my mother insisted that my father talk to the priest to ensure there was no record. I was doing temple baptisms at the time, and she thought it would damn the people I was being baptized for (sigh).
So, if there is no record…do I need to be re-confirmed? I am really not excited with this. In addition, it’s like wearing a big sign to remind me of my troubled upbringing.
