Parish School Volunteers

We consider our dedicated group of volunteers as one of our greatest assets. The Parish School depends on volunteers—whether parents, alumni, high school/college students or community organizations—for the success of events and programs. There are a number of ways for families and friends to get involved throughout the year.
