Adult Volunteers Working with Youth
Adults help in a variety of ways throughout the parish. Please consider sharing your time and talent with the high school youth, middle school youth or the mission group. All adult volunteers 18 years and older are required by the Diocese of Wichita and St. James Parish to be VIRTUS trained. Our youth need and want strong examples of faithful Catholic adults.
