Confirmation Students are required to complete twenty (20) Confirmation Service Hours based on Catholic Social Teaching and/or Corporal Works of Mercy. Service hours are due in mid-March. 

 

Service Hours are to be broken down into two categories: Service to the Church and Service to Family and Community. The two biggest changes to the program this year are the way in which Service Hours are recorded and that Mass Attendance will no longer be accepted as Service to the Church.

 

Service to the Church - 10 hours 

  • Altar Server, Children’s Choir, or Usher - Contact Jerry Simpson to volunteer.

  • 40 Days for Life prayer vigil – October 9, 2021

  • Hoofin’-It for Hunger  - October 16, 2021

  • Help sort Baby Shower items – March 6, 2022

  • Lurie’s Care Bag items – March 16, 2022

  • Attend Holy Fire (mandatory for Year 1 – November 6, 2021

  • Go to Reconciliation (here or at another parish)

  • Visit a shrine (Marytown in Libertyville; Holy Hill in Hubertus, WI; etc.)

Service to Family and Community - 10 hours

  • Joyfully help others without being compensated

  • Organize a food drive (St. Anastasia, Holy Family, & Warren Township)

  • Send hand-written letters and/or artwork to nursing homes

  • Run errands for homebound family/friends

  • Feed My Starving Children

  • Assist a friend/family/ teacher/neighbor with:

A Note about Mass Attendance

  • Mass Attendance is required and will be recorded in a Mass Attendance Record.

    • If a student forgets their Attendance Record, they may pick up an entry form at the Information Desk or click here to print a copy from home.

  • Each entry is to be signed by either the priest or deacon of the Mass.

  • Mass attendance this year does not count toward service.

  • Failure to attend Mass weekly may result in a delay of a student’s Confirmation.
