In your letter, you can include details about yourself such as where you go to school, what your interests are, how you stay connected to your parish community, and how you plan to live your life as a fully-initiated member of the Church. Bishop Hennessey would also like you to tell him what saint name you have chosen and why you chose it.
Also, Bishop Hennessey specifically asks that you tell him about your sponsor. Include details such as who this person is to you personally (Aunt, Uncle, sister, brother, etc.), why you chose this person as your sponsor, and what that means to you. You should include whatever details you’d like to share about your sponsor that make him or her so special to you. Also, be sure to tell him how your sponsor is a role model for you in how they live their faith. You can use the questions on the Sponsor Report to help you with the details of your letter.
Please note – Bishop Hennessey does read all the letters. He will make notes on many of them and will mention details from many of them during the ceremony. Please keep that in mind when composing your letter.
This letter should be below. We will be printing them out and having you sign them at Confirmation class before we send them to Bishop Hennessey.
