Volunteer & PACE
We believe that parental involvement directly affects a child’s success in all aspects of life. We offer a variety of opportunities for parents to become involved in the school ministry. From helping in the classrooms, to organizing fund-raisers, parents keep our school running smoothly.
To promote meaningful parental involvement and enhance our educational program, each school family must commit to donating 30 hours of service per school year. We thank you, and we thank the Lord for your generous, selfless contributions.

Current TB Test
Please bring current TB test result (within the last 4 years) to the school office for verification -- this will remain confidential.
The Diocese of Oakland requires that all volunteers over the age of 18 who have direct, ongoing contact with minors or vulnerable adults be live scan fingerprinted and cleared through the DOJ PRIOR to beginning service. The Ministry cannot begin until clearance is verified by the school office. This includes any school parent or volunteer, no matter the time commitment.
Fingerprinting for the Diocese of Oakland is a one time event. The DOJ does not allow sharing of information between agencies; so if someone prints for an entity that is NOT in the Diocese of Oakland, they must fingerprint for us. If you have printed for any ministry in the Diocese of Oakland, you may use that clearance for any location in the Diocese of Oakland.
Diocesan Safe Environment Training
All volunteers and employees over age 18 in any parish, school or other Diocesan Site, regardless of ministry, must be trained to recognize and respond to the signs of abuse, to be informed of the reporting procedures and to learn how to safeguard the children and vulnerable adults in their care. We train through Virtus, available online and live training.
Training must be done PRIOR to beginning service, and every 3 years thereafter. Anyone not trained on Virtus protecting God’s children must do so now.
