PSR TEACHERS ARE NEEDED
The Parish School of Religion (PSR) at St. Patrick is in need of catechists (teachers) for our Wednesday night religion classes. It is through caring, sharing, and praying that our community has grown in love and support of one another. The success of our religious education program depends on the dedicated individuals in our parish willing to share their time and faith with the future church - our parish children. We encourage all parishioners, as well as the parents of children in our program, to be a part of the faith formation process.
The mission of a Catechist is such an important one. It is a mission that has been given to the whole Church: that every individual Christian share in the works of Jesus Christ.
The role of a Catechist is to bring our young people closer to Jesus and grow in their faith as Catholics. Through their service, the catechist nurtures and mentors the faith and spiritual growth of the children they teach so that they may form a firm commitment to follow Christ.
If you feel a call from God to serve His Church, please contact Rachel Henry at 636-332-9913 ext. 1451 or [email protected]. Catechists receive a small stipend.
VOLUNTEERS ARE WELCOME
List of Volunteer Services (page 3)
We have many volunteer and service opportunities for adults and teens (either weekly or just occasionally) who’d like to lend a hand as aides in the classroom or office, as parking and dismissal assistants, or helpers at special events. This could also apply to student service hours!
St. Patrick Catholic Church and School follow the Archdiocese of St. Louis Safe Environment Program, now referred to as the Prevent and Protect STL program that offers the Protecting God’s Children Workshop. The program is designed to help protect the youth, elderly, and vulnerable adults of our parish as they participate in activities within our community. This process also provides a layer of protection against the possibility of false accusations for those adults who are involved in our many ministries.
If you have any contact with children and vulnerable adults at St. Patrick Parish, whether it be through the school or any organization, you must comply with this Program. Detailed information regarding the program may be viewed at www.stpatrickwentzville.org/sep.
