Confirmation 2021 - Christian Community Service Report and 20 Hours of Service


Confirmation candidates are required to: 

1.) Perform a minimum of 20 hours of Christian Community Service, at least 5 of which must be based at Resurrection. 

Candidates should begin their service over the summer months to avoid conflicts with homework or sport activities during the school year. It is the candidate’s responsibility to seek Community service opportunities as well as to maintain accurate and organized records of these hours on the Resurrection Prep Community Services Form.  It is important that a Supervising Signature  and contact info is obtained on the form before submission.


What is the deadline?:

  • A Community Service Form verifiying ALL 20 HOURS is due April 25, 2021.

Completed forms and reports may be submitted as follows:

  • PREP and Private Catholic School students should submit to the front desk of RES Middle School when classes are in session.
