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 care for our brothers and sisters. Volunteering is a chance 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.

Who Can Volunteer
Across the Archdiocese of Toronto, parishes have volunteer opportunities called 'Ministry Positions', each with their own responsibilities and requirements. 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:

Age
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's available.

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