Welcome to Volunteer Ministry
"For we are God's workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do."
The St. Francis in the Fields "Volunteer Commitment" program was first introduced in June 2003. Parishioners can find out about volunteer needs in the Sunday leaflet and in the monthly newsletter, "The Canticle". Since its inception, many new ministries have been created to meet the growing needs of the parish. This program was designed to enhance our vision of being a "servant driven church". Since 2003, an entire volunteer community has gotten involved in serving and devoting their talents and passions in accomplishing God's work. This "volunteer explosion" is what happens when Christ's followers offer their hearts and talents to meet these needs. Serving others is a wonderfully rich experience that will forever change who you are.
