Apostolic Service for Youth Confirmation

Youth who wish to be confirmed are to perform twenty (20 hours) of apostolic service.  “Apostolic” indicates that the work should incorporate a Work of Mercy, which means care for a human person.  Volunteering with an animal shelter or helping with an environmental endeavor, while worthy, would not qualify, since neither addresses the direct need of a person.  See the Apostolic Proposal or the Apostolic Final Report for more information on the Works of Mercy.
