Live Beyond Yourself

Are you looking for a way to "live beyond yourself"?  Volunteering with in-reach and outreach programs is a great way to do that.  You will meet new people, help out your parish, and have the opportunity to minister to the world around you in a new way.  Please look through the listed volunteer opportunities and speak with the respective contact persons to start getting involved!
