Assignment for 2nd year candidates
The capstone to the second year candidate’s portfolio is to write a letter to our pastor Father Pietrzak. In this letter the candidate should, in a thoughtful and personal way, tell the pastor why he/she wants to be confirmed. Honesty is of prime value in this letter. That means the candidate can talk about any doubts that might be present about their faith or struggles they may have had in the program. It is a chance for the candidate to evaluate the prior two years and write about some of the highlights. This is a good time to talk about any new insights the candidate may have come to as a result of the Paths program and the study and service they had done over the two years. Finally they can talk about what their relationship with Jesus looks like at this point in time. The pastor enjoys reading these letters. Make them as personal and honest as you can.
