This past year we welcomed around 85 volunteers to the Faith Formation team. Our goal is to offer programs to parishioners of all ages at various times.
Catechist: Play a crucial role in shaping the future of young Catholics as a teacher for students grades PreK-8. Share your interest in your faith with parish youth and help them discover their own faith and application to their lives. Catechists serve October through April.
Catechist Assistant: Provide the classroom support that helps catechists guide and develop the faith of our young parishioners.
Substitute Catechist: Fill in for a catechist when needed. You may be called ahead of time of the day of.
Hallway Helper: Create a secure and safe environment for children, catechists, and catechist assistants.
Special Needs Assistant: Give children requiring additional support a helping hand in building their faith.
Service Site Driver: Make sure our students arrive safely at their community service commitments. Driver/background check required.
