Catechist & Volunteer Form


Ways to Serve

Catechist - A structured curriculum, lesson plans, and all teaching materials are provided to help you lead a class of 6-12 students. If requested, you will be partnered with a catechist assistant or co-teacher.

Catechist Assistant or Co-Teacher - You will work closely with the lead catechist in whatever capacity the two of you agree upon. You are the “extra set of hands” so very much needed when working with small children.

Office Volunteer/Hall Monitor - During class hours, you will assist with attendance, prepare upcoming projects (such as cutting or gluing), and perform other office duties as needed.

Service Project Coordinator - You will help find, set-up, and publicize community service projects and outreach activities geared especially towards middle and high school students.

Musician - Play your instrument at our various events.

Tech/Designer - Help put together presentations, slide shows, video clips, graphics, etc.

Photographer - Take photos during sessions, activities, and events.
