CONFIRMATION COMMUNITY SERVICE GUIDELINES
It is the candidate’s responsibility to arrange for service. A minimum of 25 service hours (total) is required, this includes the 5 hour Mercy Project All candidates are to participate in a MERCY PROJECT. Aside from the MERCY PROJECT, three different types of service must also be performed:
family-based performing service with a family member
parish-based performing service at St. Anne Parish
community-based performing service in the greater community
Examples of each type of service are listed in this packet. School service hours may not be used for Confirmation service hours. If you are involved/participate in a Church of St. Anne ministry on a regular basis, (choir, altar server or attend TNL on a regular basis), you only have to complete the Work of Mercy Project. Every service must be signed for by a supervisor or include an official signed letter stating date, number of hours, and service performed. The letter can be inserted in this service folder. If the candidate wishes to perform services not listed in this packet, contact the Faith Formation office first to have it approved.
