And had his first communion and confirmation, and I was his sponsor (God parent!) and my son was the altar server. It was a beautiful (3 HOUR) service and SO special that we, as a family, all took part in it. When we met I went to church weekly as my son is an altar server and I would go to bible study at a Christian church and would join me but I never asked him to do any of the sacriments. He was “called”. It was quite exciting! Just wanted to share:)

@Angelz_love: Congratulations!!! Please speak to the priest handling your marriage arrangments and make sure he knows about the situation with you being your fiance’s godparent. Canonically godparents are not permitted to marry their godchildren but the rule can be (and I am sure WILL BE) waived for you.
This is a very common situation where a fiance converts and suggests his or her partner as a sponsor, the RCIA team usually catches it before the Easter Vigil ceremony and gets a different sponsor but sometimes they don’t catch it before it’s too late. No big deal, just don’t forget to make sure the priest preparing you for marriage takes care of it for you!
God bless you and your husband 🙂 🙂 What a special Easter for your whole family!

@Magdalena: You are so sweet! We actually though he was baptized and literally minutes before his Rite of Election he called his mom to obtain his baptism information, and she told him that he was never baptized. So instead of me just being his sponsor for confirmation, I ended up being the god parent. It happend so quickly we didn’t think to grab a different sponsor! I totally tease him about it! My son altar served that mass too though so it was really neat. Our RCIA guy told us if we were married they wouldn’t let me sponsor him at all but that since we were engaged and already seeing our priest it was ok. The priest who is marrying us was the priest who put together the whole mass do he does know:)
@Romantigua: Very cool! It must be exciting for you!
@desthebride: @mrs_g.mck: @T-Rex: @Mrs_Amanda: Thank you ladies! I was super excited about it!
@bookworm88: wow! Well congrats to you too! It is indeed a lengthy process and I feel it’s even more special and meaningful to do as an adult!
@Heatherloveskenny: totally! They were so excited hugging and congratulating eachother! The priest who poured the water was veryenthusiastic and everyone in the church was laughing and cheering. It was really cool!

Congrats! My fiance was baptized but never did his communion or confirmation so he will be doing his RCIA next year. My dad was the same way, and he did his confirmation and communion at Easter Vigil 3 years ago. It is a really neat experience.
