Formation Volunteer Opportunities

At St. Francis of Assisi Family Formation, we have many different opportunities to serve and they are all important. We rely on our volunteers to help make our program a success. You don’t have to know everything about Catholicism.  Every person is important and necessary to making the program run.

We hope you’ll join us this year!
