Called to Mercy Confirmation Sponsor Experience

Confirmation sponsors immerse themselves in the same journey as their young people, and together they experience Christ’s call to live out mercy in their lives.

Questions, polls, and guide dialogue are addressed to the sponsors, as they reflect on answering the call to mercy in their own lives. All sponsors are put into one course so they can see one another’s responses.

Each module in the Sponsor Experience ends with Conversation Starter Questions for the sponsor and young person to discuss. Sponsors then meet with their young people regularly during Confirmation preparation to strengthen their relationship, reflect on their experience, and discuss how to apply their learnings in daily life.
