One Eight Sponsor Handbook
Companions and Mentors
One of the critical, but sadly overlooked, aspects of confirmation preparation is the role of a sponsor. Often teenagers select aunts, uncles, and family friends as a sort of “honor” – but being a sponsor is much more than just showing up for the Mass and memorizing (hopefully) a couple of lines.
Don’t miss an opportunity to help sponsors grow as disciples and mentors of the young person they are walking with toward the Sacrament of Confirmation. The One Eight Sponsor Handbook will help your sponsors brush up on Church teaching and theology while also empowering them to be more than a warm body on confirmation day – but a faithful companion for life.
