Volunteer Screening

Well done My good and faithful servant. Matthew 25:23

Why Volunteer?
We are all called to use our gifts and talents to strengthen and nurture our Church family and to care for our brothers and sisters. Volunteering is an opportunity to be an active part of your parish, socialize with your church community and give back, in time and talent, the abundance that has been given to you, and that you are called to share.

Who Can Volunteer?
Across the Archdiocese of Toronto, parishes have volunteer opportunities called 'Ministry Positions', each with their own responsibilities and requirements. Ministry Leaders at each parish help determine which Ministry Positions are best suited to parishioners.

Due to risk and responsibility, some parishioners are excluded from certain Ministry Positions, based on:

Criminal Record
Induction into the Catholic Faith
Education and/or Experience in Theology

Where You Can Volunteer:
Most volunteer opportunities occur in local parishes and missions of the Archdiocese. Contact your parish office to find out what is available.

How To Get Started:
Before volunteering can begin, each person must successfully complete the required screening steps related to the volunteer opportunity.
