Volunteers needed in Faith Formation     

In order to offer our Faith Formation programming, we need Sunday catechists. This is an opportunity for personal spiritual development, and it enriches the faith of our children. We will help you with resources and lesson planning. Opportunities include teachers for 1st grade, 3rd/4th grade, and 5th/6th grade classes, Confirmation table leaders, and assistants in all classes.

Please contact Cathy Chiappetta [email protected] or Sara Lahmann [email protected] for more information on volunteering in our programs.
