Please see volunteer registration at bottom of this page.

RCIA Sponsor
Each year sponsors from our community are paired with adult candidates for baptism, confirmation and/or full communion with the Catholic Church.  Sponsors companion RCIA candidates by attending RCIA sessions once a month, connecting with their candidate regularly to answer questions, pray together, and build a meaningful faith-based relationship, and attend the rites and rituals of the RCIA process.  Potential sponsors must meet with an RCIA team member to discuss the process and to help us better pair them with candidates.

Sacramental Preparation for Baptism
This one hour class takes place every second Tuesday of the month.  Parents having their first child baptized must attend, but the class is open to all parishioners wanting to revisit their baptism call. The participants discuss the responsibility of raising a Catholic child. The class also includes discussion about what we believe happens spiritually at baptism and also goes through the Rite of Baptism.  Training will be provided to prepare you to teach or assist in the class.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Assistant
Assistants aid the students as they work with educational materials and aid the Catechist in however the catechist deems appropriate. There is an annual Saturday morning training to be an assistant, but you can also schedule a training session anytime thoughout the year.  Vounteers help on Sunday morning or afternoon at least once per month.  The program also is in need of skilled craft makers, including woodworking, calligraphy, art, etc.

First Reconciliation and Eucharist Retreat Helper
Volunteers are needed for two three-hour children’s retreats.  The first is the first Saturday of December.  The second is a Saturday in early April.  Volunteers can serve in two ways: 1) Working directly with children by leading a station of the retreat or 2) Helping coordinate retreat activities, moving children from station to station, and providing support to those working with the children.

Faith Formation Advisory Board
The FFAB advises the Pastoral Associate for Faith Formation on the state of faith formation in the parish, suggests ways to improve the programming we offer, and is a sounding board for ideas from parish staff.  The board meets quarterly.
