As we resume programs for the year, there are many places for which we're in need of ministry volunteers.
If something interests you, or you want more information, please contact Carol Ann or, simply REGISTER HERE to volunteer.

  • Religious Education Catechist (Teachers) and Aides for our Sunday morning program. We meet most Sundays a month, beginning in September through the end of April. English, Spanish and Bilingual volunteers are encouraged. It's preferred that the lower grades (Pre-K, Kindergarten & Grade 1) have teachers who are bilingual. The older grades (Grade 3 & up) can be only English-speaking, but bilingual is helpful.
  • Families at the Door: Sunday mornings from about 10:50am – 12:10pm. Volunteers can volunteer 1 week a month (or be present every week). Bilingual is helpful. Please contact Carol Ann if you are able to help. 
  • Liturgy of the Word for Children: Sundays mornings, during the 9:00am Mass in English and 12:30pm Mass in Spanish. We’re looking for adults as well as youth in grades 7-12 who might be interested in leading faith discussions based on the Sunday readings with children ages 4–7. Materials and training provided. Volunteers would ideally be scheduled 1x a month. Adults must complete Safe Environment Training.
  • Family Formation Event Planning Committee: We're looking for a group of people interested in planning Family Events during the year. These events would happen on Sundays and be open to all parish families. 
  • Family Formation Website Contributors: We would like to create a webpage that provides families with ways of living out their faith on a monthly basis. We're looking for volunteers to help find creative ideas connected the Seasons of the Church year.
