Spiritual Committee Volunteer Opportunities
The Spiritual Committee welcomes volunteers to assist with each of the above events. Prior to each event, we will send a SignUp Genius link for which parents will have an opportunity to volunteer. Whether it be baking, reading, taking photos, setting up or cleaning up for each event, we can always use your assistance. In addition, we have certain programs that may need assistance throughout the year. Please refer to the PA Monthly Newsletter to help with these programs. They are listed below.
|Chapel Linen Caretaker||Throughout the year, the linens and vestments used during Masses in the chapel and throughout school need to be cleaned. This role involves collecting the dirty items and bringing them to a dry cleaner to be laundered||Polly Wilson, P '17, '19, '21|
|My Brother's Closet||A portion of the collection of gently used clothing items from the garment sale will be stored and used for "shopping" by our Knights in need, anonymously.||Margaret DelPlato, P '21|
