A very Merry Christmas and my heartfelt prayers to everyone and their loved ones.
For the last session of RCIA for the year we had a Christmas dinner, and after the meal we were discussing the Easter Vigil mass. One of the members of my parish, who is heavily involved, mentioned that as well as my sponsor (who was chosen by my Parish Priest) I can choose Godparents. She implied that they were for my Baptism, and then my sponsor was for my Confirmation. I am almost certain she was wrong about this. I would very much appreciate some clarification. I am under the impression I only have my sponsor as an adult convert to the Catholic Church. Is this correct? Godparents seem an obsolete idea, given I am an adult and thus responsible for my own faith development/catechesis.
I will definitely ask my priest, but haven’t had a chance yet. I figured asking here would be an excellent place to start.
Many thanks in advance, and I apologise if this is the incorrect place for this post!
