Gospel for the Mass:
Rather than choosing sponsors, there is evidence that in the early church, the entire ecclesial community cared for those entering the church, which is supported by St.
Initiation into the church is still very communal. Sponsors should actively engage with the young person, which is difficult to do long distance, Silhavy said. A sponsor should be a good example who can explore faith questions with the teen, Klima said.
Sometimes teens ask people who are active in a parish ministry to sponsor them, Silhavy said. Besides the spiritual benefits, young people are encouraged by knowing that their sponsor is praying for them, Silhavy said. Attend formation if the parish invites or requires sponsors to attend formation or prayer sessions with the confirmand.
Serve as a witness if the parish asks sponsors to write or present a testimony stating that the teen is ready for confirmation.
Some parishes have drawn this aspect of the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults process into youth confirmation formation, Klima said.
Be a role model. Hopefully, the sponsor somehow exemplifies virtue for the teen, Silhavy said. In whatever way a sponsor-confirmand relationship develops, being able to talk about faith and other aspects of life will make a difference for the teen, Silhavy said.Activities & Resources schwenkreis.com-Advent schwenkreis.com-Tons of resources listed that are available online to assist in the planning and development of programs for the Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany schwenkreis.com-Advent Activities (classroom activities, family activities, parish activities, lesson plans)schwenkreis.com-Catholic Advent Activities.
