CONFIRMATION CORNER…
NEWS FROM THE 2016 CONFIRMATION COMMUNITY

See how our Confirmation Community of 9th graders have been shining the Light of Christ:

Our 9th graders had a busy weekend January 9th and 10th as they not only prepared, but also served a meal at lmmaCare (formerly known as lmmaculate Conception Shelter) in Hartford. These teens made close to 200 delicious lasagna rolls, tossed salads and cookies to feed 140 men at the shelter. These youth were a beautiful example of living Pope Francis' call to open our hearts during this Year of Mercy. The students who served this meal did so with respect, compassion and big smiles on their faces.  
 
Prior to the lmmaCare dinner, these students had been very busy throughout the Advent season.

Projects included:

  • Making Gingerbread houses for elderly housing residents
  • Making cookies for Catholic Worker House
  • Wrapping Giving Tree gifts for residents of Marlborough Health Care Center
  • Writing prayer intentions for the parish Christmas tree


Please continue to keep this group of young Catholics in your prayers as they continue growing in their faith.
