You have the great honor of being chosen as a sponsor.
Not only is this a great time to grow spiritually for both you and the candidate, but also a chance to deepen the relationship between the two of you.
Sponsors are called to be a friend, a witness, and a guide on the journey to Confirmation and beyond.
Your friendship will bring comfort and safety for the candidate to openly express questions, thoughts, doubts, and beliefs.
Your example of being a faith-filled Catholic will bring understanding and direction for the candidate to live a holy life.
And your guidance will bring support and growth as the candidate is sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and is strengthened for service in the church.
