Faith Formation Volunteer Opportunities

Please consider how you can contribute to your child’s program.  If you see something that interests you, let’s sit down and chat and see what fits!  The important thing is to take part in some way.

Catechist:         Are you called to share your Catholic faith and influence the lives of those growing up in it?  Are you interested in growing in faith yourself?  Do you feel God is calling you to this?  If so, perhaps being a catechist is the next step in deepening your relationship with God and God’s people.  Let’s sit down and talk about it!
