3 Service Sessions with reflections
Jesus told us “As you did it to one of the least of my brothers, you did it to me”. This is the same Jesus who tells us “This is my Body, this is my Blood” and commissions us through Eucharist to live and to share the good news—the gospel. As Catholics we are called to serve, not to do “projects” or to “count hours” but to truly change ourselves and the world. Pope Francis said, “Become active yourselves, also. When many do that together, then there will be improvements in this world and people will sense the Spirit of God is working through you. And maybe then you will be like torches that make the path brighter for these people.” Go and Do!
For service related to your preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation we ask that you participate in at least three occasions of service that are not less than one hour each. For eighth graders one of these services should be done with your sponsor and/or family member if your sponsor lives out of town.
Seventh graders should serve with a parent and/or family for one service. And YES you may do more than three!
Once you complete your service we ask you to reflect and to answer several questions about your experience, which will be available through the links below, and submit it to your teacher by the due dates.
If you are doing a long term service, such as serving as an aide in special needs or a member of the Food For All team, you can choose one of the due dates for your report.
