Upon choosing a saint’s name, you will be asked to write a research paper about the life of your

chosen saint and why you decided upon that particular saint.


Why do we choose saint’s names for Confirmation?

At Confirmation we deepen our commitment to the Church and our faith. As a symbol of this change

in our lives we choose for ourselves a ‘new name.’ We look to the saints to be models for our own

lives, and we know that we are able to ask them to pray for us. So we use a saint’s name for two


1) We choose the name of a saint we want to be like.

2) We choose a saint that we want to honor, and who we want to pray for us.
