A valuable and timely guide for new, current and prospective sponsor members about
the distinctive role of sponsors and important role of the laity for the
health ministry of the Catholic Church.
The guide highlights the vocation, personal qualifications and recruitment of
individual sponsor members and the importance of their ongoing formation and
spiritual development. In addition to explaining evolving models of sponsorship
and the development of ministerial juridic persons (MJPs), the guide describes
core competencies of the sponsor body and its role as a Gospel ministry.
The resource will also assist leaders in understanding the distinctive
responsibilities of the sponsor body and governance board. The new resource
builds on CHA's Core Competencies of the Sponsor publication to address evolving
developments in sponsorship.
