GROUP SERVICE HOURS

 Jesus wants us to serve one another as He has served us. As a Confirmation candidate, you are expected take this message seriously. In preparation for Confirmation, you are required to work twenty service hours to help improve our community. Ten of those hours will be done on your own. Some of you have already worked those hours at Vacation Bible School and the parish picnic.

 Ten of your service hours will be done with the group from Mary Queen of Peace. I am attaching a list of the opportunities for group service hours. Please look at this list and decide which volunteer activities appeal to you and will work into your schedule. You MUST choose at least ten hours from this list. If you want to do more than ten hours of group service, you can count them towards the total of twenty hours that you need for Confirmation.

 Please share this paper with your parents and sponsors. They are encouraged to come with you as we work on these group service projects. Don’t let transportation issues keep you from signing up for a service project. We can provide rides from Notre Dame and from MQOP. We must have at least two students sign up for a service agency; there will be a maximum number of people at some places.

 You MUST sign up for group service hours! Your parents and sponsors should come with you.
