Religious Education: Information for Volunteers

Our Religious Education Volunteers are the very life of our program. Their generosity of time and talent make our program possible. Our children are the future of our faith, and these normal, everyday people help our families to provide their children with the strong foundation required to be a person of faith in the modern world. With the addition of each volunteer, our program is strengthened with fresh perspectives, creativity, greater safety, and organization, allowing us to provide smaller class sizes, and more sessions for our families. If you are interested becoming a part of this rewarding and life-giving ministry, please contact the Religious Education Office at stpatreled@comcast.net or call (508) 907-6220, or click here and fill out the form.
