Why did you get Confirmed? Was it to check a box or mark something "important" off of your to-do list? Was it to make your parents happy or "graduate" from Sunday School? 

Or was it something more?

Your Confirmation is about uniting your will to the will of God and accepting and pursuing the plan that He has for you. This plan will set you free, motivate your heart, and empower your spirit to help you live your best life as the best version of who you are. 

Ember Team is a call and an opportunity to flex your spiritual muscles by serving your peers and your community in radical ways. We need you. The Church needs you.

Jesus needs you.

"Follow me." 

Discipleship is about living out your relationship with Jesus every day! Ember Team empowers teens who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation to magnify the Gospel through prayer, unity (community life), leadership, service, and evangelization.
