As a sponsor you represent the support and prayer of the entire Church. You will be the candidates “spiritual friend” so to speak. Your role in supporting your candidate on this journey is very important. Here at All Saints we ask the following of you :
- Attend the Confirmation rehearsal.
- Attend the Liturgy of Confirmation.
- Meet with regularly throughout the time of preparation. Discussing the topics addressed in the teen's sessions.
- Share your faith story with your candidate.
- Spend time getting to know your candidate better. If possible take him/her out to lunch or dinner, or have him/her over to your home.
- Pray for and with your candidate often!
- Present your candidate during the Confirmation Rite.
- Continue to be there for your candidate and lend spiritual support even after the Confirmation ceremony is over.
