WATCH: What Makes a Good Confirmation Sponsor?

Share

Ascension Press' Fr. Mike Schmitz shares advice for how to be a better sponsor than he's been

In this Ascension Press video, the always-engaging Fr. Mike Schmitz answers a couple of questions he’s received in his popular video series, “Ask Fr. Mike.” He admits to not being an ideal confirmation sponsor himself, which has taught him a few things about what you really should do in this role. (Ascension Press has produced a confirmation program called Chosen.)

Fr. Mike also answers a question about the all-male priesthood by going back to Moses to explain the roots of this consistent teaching.
