Forms you’ll need:

Teen form     Parent form
The Confirmation Stewardship project is done with your teen. The activity should take 2 to 4 hours.  Suggestion: sorting food at a food bank, serving meals at a shelter, playing games/visiting with residents at a nursing home. We want them to serve God’s people…the hungry, homeless and sick. If you are unsure if your idea qualifies, email Dawn at dcavanaugh@sfxmedina.org or call 330-764-8958. After the project is completed, complete two forms (linked above).

Confirmandi also must attend four of these Life Teen Life Nights in the fall prior to Confirmation: Sept. 15, 22, 29, Oct. 6, 13 or 20, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. (includes Mass, food and fun!)
