Parish Ministry

Confirmation Preparation is an opportunity to explore how to use your gifts to support the mission of the Church - sharing our gifts for the purpose of meeting the spiritual and corporal needs of our parish and community. We will use at least one Ablaze Meeting time to assemble food packets for Catholic Charities, Cup of Joe.

In addition, we invite our candidates and parents to choose a Parish Liturgical or Corporal Ministry to explore during the year.
