Become a Rite of Christian Initiation Sponsor
Past sponsors have said:
“As a convert myself, I feel that participating in RCIA has allowed me to learn things that I missed the first time around and over the past 25+ years.” Susan Hickey
“Each time I have been a sponsor (4 times counting this year) I have continually come away with a better as well as deeper understanding of our faith.” Mike Carroll
“I have sponsored 3 very different women and have been amazed by the ways they have blossomed. The classes bring out the beautiful spirituality of our Catholic Christian faith and the Candidates are exposed to the fulness of that spirituality. As a sponsor, your own spiritual life will blossom as well.” Bonnie Younginer
“Being a sponsor, I was a companion to someone who was walking step by step on their faith journey. On their Confirmation night, I saw them renewed and strengthened as a child of Jesus Christ. As a sponsor, my own faith was renewed and strengthen.” Marie El-Khabbaz
“I have learned new things and heard new interpretations/ perspectives of things I have already heard.” Kyle Logue
What is the role of the Sponsor? They accompany the candidate on their faith journey.
Sponsors are an example and support for the candidate/catechumen. They aren’t required to have all the answers. Sponsors are part of the RCIA Team that includes, facilitators for the sessions, hospitality coordinators, prayer partners, retreat leaders, etc. It is the Parish Community that initiates one into the Catholic Church. This means we need YOU to become involved!
