Volunteer Opportunities

“Many hands make light work”

It’s not too early to think about how you can help at this year’s Fall Festival.  Committee members have logged many hours preparing, but we need all of you to make this a successful event.  We hope to expand our games and offer some new booths for the community which means we need a lot more volunteers!  This is a great chance to share your time and talent and an opportunity to strengthen our parish family ties. We invite parishioners from all sites to join us in this important fundraiser.

All volunteers must be CASE (Creating A Safe Environment) certified in order to work at the festival.  Certification is valid for three years and the training sessions take only 60 minutes of your time.   A schedule will appear in the bulletin and be posted on the parish website in the near future.
