As part of the preparation for the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation, we are asking each family to incorporate the Works of Mercy into some service for the parish and community. Throughout the next few months, as a family, develop a way of showing how you can live out the Works of Mercy and serve our parish and community at large.
On Sunday, April 11, 2020, beginning with the 10:30 AM Mass, we will have a celebration of the work you and your family have done. At that celebration, we would like each family to bring with them a poster depicting how they fulfilled these service opportunities. Light refreshments will be served at this gathering.
The poster may be no larger than 3' x 4'. It can include photographs of your family performing the service project or hand drawn accounts of what was done. Please ensure your family name is visible on the front of the poster.
Past projects have included, but are not limited to, visits to the Ronald McDonald House, 5K runs/walks; chemo kits for hospital patients; and sponsored sports clinics.
We highly encourage you to select a service work that inspires you and revolves around your passions in life. The sky is the limit.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Joan Duncan, director of Faith Formation, in the St. Barbara Parish Office location at 724-744-7474 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
