Sponsorship Webinar Session Six: Sponsors and the Church, Local and Universal

Daniel O'Brien and Bishop William A. Wack, Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, will discuss the relationship between the sponsor and the Church with diocesan bishops, the Holy See and the Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. How do sponsors acquire an "ecclesial prudence" that enables them to maintain healthy relationships with the Church? What are the bishop's rights and responsibilities, and what do they expect of ministries in their diocese?
