Stewardship project forms (due June 5, 2020)
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 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. 13, 20, 27, Oct. 4, 11 or 25 (pending Confirmation date), 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. (includes Mass, food and fun!)
