Northern Lights Walk to Emmaus Sponsor Form

SPONSORS: PLEASE READ BEFORE GIVING THE APPLICATION FORM (or sending an email link to the online form) TO A PROSPECTIVE PILGRIM

We are counting on you to understand and fulfill the responsibilities of a Sponsor.

The duties include:

1. Awareness and Sensitivity – You should sponsor only those you know well enough to assess their spiritual, physical, and emotional readiness for the Emmaus Walk Experience.

2. Preparation – You are to inform the pilgrim and spouse, if applicable, of the nature and schedule of the Walk and the opportunity for ongoing Emmaus participation. Remember, NO secrets, only surprises. If the fee is a problem, check with the Registrar.

3. Support – You are asked to support your pilgrim with transportation to and from the Walk, prayer during the Walk, provide personal agape, attend Sponsor’s Hour, escort them to their first Monthly Gathering and assist them in finding a share group. You should ask the pilgrim if there are family needs with which you can help during the Walk. You should also provide two snack or drink items that all the pilgrims and team can enjoy during the weekend.

How will you be serving and sacrificing for your Pilgrim?
