Consider Volunteering!
Over 100 adults and middle and high school students volunteer with Faith Formation.  The ministry relies on parishioners for support.  Volunteering is a great opportunity to strengthen and pass on faith, participate in fun activities, meet new people, and help form parish youth.  Please consider helping as a middle school (grades 7 or 8) catechist on Sunday evening.  Information on volunteering is below.  

 

Please contact the Faith Formation office at 649-0231, ext. 1, or faith-formation@sspphamburg.org about the program.
