Service Opportunities


Our volunteers DO need to be background checked and VIRTUS trained. You can find more info about that HERE, or by reaching out to Environmental Safety Coordinator, Jamie Pohl at

The St. John’s event calendar and Weekly Bulletin are great places to watch for possible opportunities for involvement.

Visit the EVENTS PAGE for specific events to volunteer. The calendar lists events by date. Click the event to learn more, view links, and find links to sign up and volunteer.
