Religious Education Catechists, Co-Catechists, Classroom Assistants, as well as Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Leads and Assistants: For those with a love of sharing about Jesus, enjoy children, and like to teach others. Must be available most weeks of the school year to offer consistency for the children. You may choose to be paid or volunteer your time.

Substitute Catechists: For those who want to help spread the love of Jesus, but are not available on a consistent basis. You may choose to be paid or volunteer your time.

Office Help: For those with a gift of hospitality and organization, help in the office during the Monday or Wednesday sessions, monitor the door, collect attendance, aid catechists as needed, make copies, and other simple tasks to help the programs. This position may be paid or you may volunteer your time.

Materials Helper: Are you creative? Do you like to work with your hands? Throughout the year we have various projects we can use help with – these include, but are not limited to, creating poster boards, designing parent resources, constructing materials out of wood, painting, etc.

Laundry Helper: Each week we have a small number of towels, mats, and cloths that need to be laundered from our CGS program. These would need to be picked up after 4:30 on Wednesday afternoon and returned Monday morning.
