Parish School Volunteers

Looking for ways to get involved?

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.
