Volunteer at St. Paul’s
Sign Up!By submitting your contact information, you will receive parish-related volunteer opportunities by e-mail. Your information will be kept strictly confidential. You do not need to be a parishioner to volunteer. Visitors and students are welcome!
St. Paul Cathedral provides various services, activities, and organizations that benefit parishioners and the community. These programs are only made possible by volunteers who serve as good stewards; graciously donating their time, talents, and treasure in service to the parish. In order to continue offering these programs, it is important that we have willing volunteers available – even donating as little as one hour, once a month is a tremendous gift of stewardship to the parish. This is a wonderful opportunity to get more involved in the parish, make a difference for others and above all serve the Lord.
