Volunteer Opportunities

Looking to get involved in our parish?  There are several opportunities available for individuals and families in the area of religious education for children and adults.  Find out more about opportunities in RCIA, PREP and Children’s Liturgy of the Word below.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Two volunteer families are needed to lead Children’s Liturgy of the Word beginning in September 2019. If your regularly attend the 9:30 a.m. or 11:30 a.m., Sunday Mass please consider  volunteering one Sunday each month. You would be scheduled nine times. Children’s Liturgy of the Word is for children in Kindergarten through 4th grade. It is scripted, lasts approximately twenty minutes and all supplies are provided. Diocesan Youth Protection Clearances are needed over age 14. Please email Jo Ellen at jfrist@sclhbg.org.

PREP (Parish Religious Education Program)
The following PREP classes will need aides: 1st, 6th, 7th and 8th grades. PREP classroom aides assist the catechist in preparing the classroom, maintaining order, distributing supplies, taking attendance, etc. Ideally, the aide should be present every class for the entire year; if not, a team of two aides may alternate. Diocesan Youth Protection Badges are mandatory for anyone volunteering over age 14. Confirmed teens are more than welcome. Please email Jo Ellen at jfrist@sclhbg.org.

People journeying through the RCIA process need sponsors and community support to help them grow in faith. The RCIA team of sponsors helps guide, support and instruct those discerning whether to become members of our Catholic community. Team members share their faith with inquiring adults who are seeking more information about the Catholic Church, many of whom seek to celebrate one or more of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. If interested in becoming a member of the RCIA Team please contact Deb at 717.564.1321 or dsalldin@sclhbg.org for more information.
