Confirmation Service Project Information
There is an ancient tradition within our Church of Candidates for Confirmation preparing to receive the Holy Spirit by dedicating themselves to Christian Service for others. Confirmation Students are asked to be willing to extend themselves on behalf of others in obedience to Jesus’ teaching: “I assure you, as often as you did it for one of my least brothers, you did it for me.” (Matthew 25:35-40)
EACH CANDIDATE IS REQUIRED TO PERFORM 4 PROJECTS OF CHRISTIAN SERVICE:
2 projects during 7th grade year (each project is at least a 2 hour commitment)
2 projects during 8th grade year (one of these 8th grade projects is to be done with sponsor if at all possible)
ALL CONFIRMATION PROJECTS ARE TO BE CHOSEN FROM THE LIST BELOW:
SPS students may do service projects around the school, which are not on this list, as long as they get the signature of a teacher or principal.
SERVICE PROJECT FORMS:
