One of the special parts of Confirmation is choosing a saint’s name. As a symbol of becoming a new person in Christ, it is a tradition that each candidate takes a saint’s name. You are to choose a saint that you admire. That saint’s name will become your Confirmation name. The Bishop will call you by this name at Confirmation.
1. Research the lives of the saints. Look for a saint who is the patron of an activity that interests you or of a profession you think you might pursue. Visit https://www.catholic.org/saints/patron.php, to explore patron saints.
2. Pick a saint you admire and whose name you want to use for your Confirmation. Write a one to two page reflection on that saint and why you chose that person.
3. The assignment should be typed, Times New Roman, double spaced, and 12 font.
