Confirmation Service

Life of Service

Why is this necessary?

Jesus invites us to follow Him. To follow Christ means that we serve others as He did- with great love and compassion, in prayer and selfless generosity. God helps us to be able to do this by sending us the Holy Spirit. Confirmation gives us the abundant graces to develop our talents and gifts in a unique way to be Christ in the world.

How do I know what to do?

What do you enjoy doing? Do you have a specific skill or talent? Make a list of your interests and abilities. Ask your friends, parents, and sponsor what they recognize as your unique talents. How can these characteristics serve your family, community, and the Church? Ask God how you can use your talents to serve others. He has a plan for your life!
