A simple plan for involving RCIA sponsors in providing a suitable catechesis

  1. Nick-This is brilliant. I’ve often told RCIA sponsors that they do not need to attend the sessions because my experience has been that the sponsors talk more than the candidates/catechumens and make them feel as if they shouldn’t participate in the conversation. I’ve struggled with where the sponsors fit into the RCIA model. The Pastor wants to dismiss the sponsors at Mass with the candidates, because he thinks the sponsors need to learn more. Your suggestion is an ideal way to involve them in a deeper way, doing what they are supposed to do- walk with the candidate/catechumen. Thank you! I’m going to implement this immediately!!!!

  2. Nick, I have been involved with RCIA for a number of years. I have used my sponsors as well as team members to Break open the Word at each of our sessions. They do a great job.
