Service projects are designed to provide those seeking Confirmation with opportunities to better understand the role that serving the needs of others plays in leading a Christ-like life, and living out the Faith as Catholic adults.
The Church calls on each of us to fulfill its mission of spreading the Gospel message and sharing the love God has shared with us through the teachings of Jesus.
By completing your Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy project, you will experience a taste of the many ways the Catholic Church inspires us to love others, especially those most in need.
