Forms you’ll need:

Confirmation saint report (WAS DUE March 21)

Confirmation Sponsor Verification Form due May 30 

Stewardship project forms due May 30.
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).
