We are looking for adults who are passionate about their faith and interested in sharing their faith journey with young children or teens. No experience necessary! We will give you the tools you will need.
If you have a heart to serve younger children, consider volunteering as a catechist in our religious education program. You can participate as either a lead catechist/teacher or an assistant. We have three age groups in which you could serve, Early Childhood (ages 3-5), Grades 1-5, and Middle School Grades 6-8. Our program runs from late September until May each year.

Training is provided!
