SPONSOR CERTIFICATES (for Baptisms and Confirmation)
Congratulations on having been asked to be a Confirmation Sponsor or Baptismal Godparent. In accepting this responsibility you are to be a witness in the practice of the faith and an advocate for Jesus Christ to the teenager, or you will promise to assist the parents of the child in raising their child in the practice of the faith.
If you are a Confirmed Catholic living in full communion with the Church, if you are a registered and active parishioner of St. Brendan’s, and are an active participant in parish life (you celebrate weekly mass with us every week) then please speak with Father Codega after the Sunday Mass you usually attend for a sponsor certificate. Please do not wait until the week before the ceremony!
SUPREME COURT DECISION ON SAME SEX MARRIAGE: Read it here. Reading the four dissenting opinions will be most helpful in discussing this issue with your family, friends, and co-workers. Chief Justice Roberts writes, “Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be.” "If you are among the many Americans—of whateversexual orientation—who favor expanding same-sex marriage, by all means celebrate today’s decision. Celebrate the achievement of a desired goal. Celebrate the opportunity for a new expression of commitment to a partner. Celebrate the availability of new benefits. But do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it. I respectfully dissent."
