We need volunteers. YOU are especially crucial to our program! It has been a long tradition at OLV that our parish family has offered their time and talents. It is through caring, sharing, and praying that our community has grown in love and support.
Our religious education program’s success depends on the dedicated individuals in our parish willing to share their time, talents, and faith with the future Church, our parish children. We encourage all our parishioners, as well as parents of children in our program, to help in some way.
We are in need of catechists, classroom aides, and substitute teachers.
The Diocese mandates VIRTUS training. Currently, Virtus training is accomplished online. The Office of Child Protection performs background checks and safe environment training for adults and youth in accordance with the requirements of the USCCB Charter on the Protection of Children.
A catechist must be at least 18 years old, a practicing Catholic in good standing who attends weekly Mass, has a love for children, the desire to grow in faith and share that journey with young people.
All done in service to the Church. We need you!
