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 email@example.com 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!)
All confirmation students must attend ONE of these retreats:
- June 14-16 – Steubenville Youth Conference REGISTRATION CLOSED
- July 7-11 – Servants for Christ service camp for incoming freshmen through graduated seniors. Servants for Christ is a service retreat with other youth groups in our area. REGISTER HERE
During the day, our teens spread out into the community to help those in need, and in the afternoon, they congregate back at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish (Cuyahoga Falls) for games & retreat programming. Each day begins with Mass, and our retreatants have opportunities for Confession and Adoration during the week.
