How to Select a Saint for Confirmation Names
Your confirmation name is meant to form a connection with a patron saint. This saint will act as a guide on your spiritual journey. Your confirmation name does NOT have to match your given or baptismal name. You are not limited to saints of the same gender either.
There are several ways to select a saint. You may choose a patron:
- to set an example for your faith journey;
- who reflects your values or interests;
- based on your future occupation;
- due to family tradition.
The reasons for selecting your confirmation name are up to you. Many Catholics use their confirmation name as a second middle name. Others keep their confirmation name private and only use it in church settings. You decide what is right for your faith journey.
Special Occasions for Invoking the Saints
- Selling a home: When someone wants to sell their home, they should bury a statue of St. Joseph in the yard for good luck on a fast sale. Once the home is sold, retrieve the statue and place in your new home!
- Traveling/vacation: Traveling is easier than ever but still a hassle. Call upon St. Christopher, the patron saint of travel, for help before your next big trip.
- Finding a job: You can’t use a patron saint as a reference on your resume, but you can pray to them for guidance. St. Cajetan is the patron of job seekers.
