  • Stuck on who you should pick for your Confirmation Saint?

    Life Teen has prepared a wonderful list with different suggestions -- we have attached a link below!

    Remember: Picking a Confirmation Saint should be taken seriously. The idea is to pick a Saint who would be a good model for you as you grow in holiness and try to live the Christian life. Find a Saint who has similar interests to you, similar struggles, or someone who led an earthly life you find admirable.

    Though the Sacrament of Confirmation is not accompanied by a legal name change, Catholics often informally add their Saint's first name after their middle name and before their last name, so keep that in mind when you pick a Saint.

    The Saints who share your first or middle names are already special patrons, so you might pick a Saint who you are not already named after.
