Dear [Recipients Name],

I belong to St. Anthony's Parish in Sandhurst. I intend to receive the sacrament of confirmation, and I am working towards fulfilling my obligations.

I have chosen a sponsor who is a close friend and guide. [Name] has been kind and gracious in helping me understand the finer meaning of Christianity. Together we have been serving mid-day meals to needy kids in the parish, collecting donation by a door-to-door campaign, and visiting the old in our vicinity. These activities helped me realize how lucky I am to have a chance to be part of this community.

My parents are staunch Catholics and regular churchgoers. The dedication and faith of my family have shown me how God can touch lives and transform our living. It is this reason I have an inclination towards Christianity.

I believe you would be pleased with this decision and I look forward to meeting you. Thank you.

Further things to consider when writing confirmation letters to religious leaders

Confirmation Letters

Confirmation letters are letters sent by individuals, businesses, or companies to summarize details such as verbal agreements between two parties, job interviews, or appointments. Broadly speaking, they are written to verify certain details upon request or recognize previous agreements. A confirmation letter can serve as a formal document to confirm the receipt of orders, schedule of an important appointment, or recruitment of new employees. It can also be used to confirm travel arrangements and reservations and in instances such as immigration to confirm marital status. Confirmation letters are mostly used by businesses to keep formal records and to avoid conflicts regarding transactions or agreements.

Confirmation letters are brief and contain only the necessary information. State what is being confirmed clearly and accurately. If you are verifying an employee's position in the company, for example, take note of his/her official title. Be cautious about times, dates, and places. Include all relevant details and anything else that needs to be confirmed. If necessary, restate the previously agreed terms and conditions to ensure that there are no conflicts or misunderstandings in the future. Close the letter with a positive remark and your signature. This letter should be printed on the company's letterhead.

Letters to Religious Leaders

Letters to religious leaders are letters written to the leaders of a religious order or any person who has the capacity to lead others in a religious event. Knowing how to address your letter to a specific religious leader can be complicated because there are so many ranks of leaders in every religious order. However, if you want to appear respectful, it is important that you follow the right protocol. Apart from when writing to his Holiness, the easiest rule of thumb and the best way to seem respectful is to start your letter as "Dear[Rank]" as in "Dear Bishop", or "Dear Vicar".

Letters to religious leaders can be formal or informal depending on the content or your relationship with the recipient. Begin your letter with the proper salutation. Clearly state the reason why you are writing. Convey your message in a clear and direct manner. Provide only the necessary information regarding the purpose of your letter. Be brief and concise and avoid filling in the recipient with irrelevant details. Use a polite and professional tone and refrain from using words that may seem inappropriate or offensive to the recipient. Wrap it up on a positive note.
