Celebrating the Gift of God’s Love

Volunteering at St. Pascal's

Volunteering at St. Pascal's

It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love 
that is put into them that matters.
Mother Teresa


Each week at St. Pascal's lots of people just like you give their time to serve the parish community.  We know you are busy and there are a million things competing for your time and attention.

But we also know you will make great friends and grow in your relationship to the community and to God through your service. 

You'll find there are lots of ways that you can contribute to the vibrant community at St. Pascal's through one-time and ongoing volunteer opportunities.  Every volunteer makes a difference at St. Pascal's!

A few of our immediate needs are listed below or see a full list here.  Please let us know if you are called to volunteer in a way or area that is not currently part of our ministry and service list.  We would love to hear your ideas for building a strong Christian community through volunteering!
