Sharing your Faith
...But how do I share Faith?
Central to being a Confirmation sponsor is sharing with young people the worthy adventure of living a gospel-centered life. You may not feel equipped for this task, but don't worry, neither did the first disciples of Jesus! In fact, sharing our faith with each other is not a task, but a way of life.
Ask your candidate why he or she chose you as a sponsor. You may discover that he or she has already been seeing the "Good News" in your life.
As a sponsor you are "being church" with your candidate. You are helping to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of young people and to empower them to become disciples of Jesus who witness to their faith by living and working for justice, peace and human dignity.
So how can I "be church" with my candidate?

Tips on how to do these three things in the coming weeks...
The Church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became man for no other purpose.
