Baptism Presentation
The Archdiocese requires that couples attend two consecutive classes to prepare for the Sacrament of Baptism. We need volunteers to greet couples and present the program. All presenters would be trained and given the materials for topics such as stewardship, discipleship, the symbols of the Sacrament or Scripture. Volunteering in this ministry requires your attendance five times a year on a Sunday afternoon from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. For more information please contact Sylvia Salinas
Marriage Preparation Presentation
Volunteering in this ministry requires the ability for couples to speak in public about a select subject that is part of the program for Marriage Preparation. Pre registered engaged couples must attend two days of classes in order to fulfill the requirements as set for by the Archdiocese for preparation before marriage. There are five or six sessions a year and the time required is about 2 hours of presentation time.For more information, contact Mary and Steve Gangelhoff at

Foccus Couples
This ministry requires the ability to develop a relationship with a couple who will soon be getting married. Couples who are married for five years or more will find this to be a very rewarding ministry. The engaged couple takes the Foccus questionnaire. The Foccus couple then reviews it with them discussing where there may be some disagreement or areas the couple may wish to discuss further. Training is required, and the time commitment is about five times a year. For further information, contact Joan O'Leary at
RCIA Sponsors
This ministry requires a commitment to an individual who is on a journey of faith to become Catholic. Meetings are on Thursday nights from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. For more information please contact Sylvia Salinas
Non Sacrament Volunteer Opportunities

Adult Faith Formation Volunteers
This ministry requires an interest in the education of adults in the Parish. As a volunteer, you would work with a team to decide how we can present interesting workshops and classes to the Parish usually on Monday evenings with an occasional Saturday for special events. Team meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month. A knowledge of good Catholic speakers and keen eye for current topics would help you in this role, but is not absolutely necessary. For more information please contact Sylvia Salinas.
