When You Are An RCIA Sponsor


Someone has decided to become a Catholic and you have been invited to be the person’s sponsor during the journey of conversion. What does a sponsor do during the process of Christian initiation?

In When You Are An RCIA Sponsor Rita Burns Senseman reflects on the responsibility and significance of being chosen to share your faith and personal experience with someone less familiar with the path than you. She explains clearly and briefly the Rite Of Christian Initiation Of Adults. Her explanation includes a description of the theology of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. She offers suggestions for being a companion and witness on the RCIA journey, for introducing and welcoming the new Catholic into the parish faith community, and for praying and worshiping together. Each chapter provides questions for reflection or discussion, and passages from the Rite Of Christian Initiation Of Adults, Scripture And The Catechism Of The Catholic Church for prayerful meditation. The author also includes guidance for sponsoring familes.
