Youth Ministry Program Volunteer Opportunities!
I, Amanda am very excited as we enter into this summer season to begin preparing for our upcoming year of Confirmation and Lifeteen and am honored and thrilled to have this opportunity to serve the youth here at St. Paul’s! But the truth is that no matter the hours, effort, and prayer that I may pour in, I simply can’t do it by myself. The reality is that we have many, many teens at our parish, and only one youth minister—praise be to God, I am badly outnumbered!
That’s where you come in…
This is an invitation to respond to your baptismal call to share the Gospel with all peoples—a mission personally given by Christ not to priests and youth ministers, but to all His children! The middle and high schoolers of St. Paul need true models of faithfulness, of trust in God, and of obedience to His Church. They need you!
I am praying every day for the Lord to provide help with the youth programs, and maybe you reading this is that person. I want to encourage you to pray about it, see where the Lord takes you and if you want more information, please contact me at [email protected]

We are in need of volunteers for our 2021/22 Children’s Faith Formation program, grades K-6. We need both Adults and Teens (grades 7 and up)
Each of our classrooms requires 2 adults be present. You can volunteer to be a teacher or more of an aide type position, depending on your comfort level. Many people may be a little apprehensive about helping in classrooms, but once you get in there, you’ll see it is not so hard. Catechists are given teacher guides which lay out how to teach the information. Many who start as aides eventually start teaching some lessons. With 2 adults in a class, you can alternate teaching lessons, so you are not responsible every week. This “2 adult rule” is a safety requirement set forth by the Diocese and is meant to keep our children safe.
Teens helpers are important to our program as well. They help the catechists by helping children during a lesson/activity and running errands during class like making copies and getting supplies. Teens can earn volunteer credit for Confirmation classes and volunteer organizations at their schools.
St. Paul staffs the Soup Kitchen on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month (also the 4th when there are 5). If you can find time in your schedule to volunteer, please contact Nancy Daly at 719-635-7087.
Marian House Kitchen Volunteers Needed
As Catholic Charities transitions meal services to focus more on working poor and vulnerable families, seniors, and people with disabilities, it was the right time to drop soup from our name. So for now, we will be known as the Marian House Kitchen.
