RCIA is in need of Sponsors for adults becoming Catholic and those going through the Sacraments.
If interested please contact Immanuel Israel at 910-938-1708 or Larry Snow 910-207-3645
An important part of the RCIA is the role of the Sponsor; an active member of the local parish Church that walks the journey with his/her candidate.
To serve the goals of R.C.I.A., sponsors must be active, practicing Catholics. The ideal sponsor is mature in their faith and active, so as to connect their candidate or catechumen to the parish, via parish activities, ministry, and overall parish life, and be objective in their judgment of a person's readiness or calling.
Parishioners interested in becoming an R.C.I.A. sponsor must:
Be at least 18 years old
Be fully initiated in the Catholic Church (Baptism, Confirmation, 1st Holy Communion)
If married, current marriage was witnessed by a Catholic priest
