Parish Life MINISTRY

Volunteer – how to become one

Within parishes and schools, volunteers are recognized as a vibrant and necessary support to the ministries offered by each community. Volunteer participation brings added gifts, talents and experiences to the community to achieve its fullest potential.

As a representative of the Church, every volunteer who is in a position of trust with minors or vulnerable adults must fill out a volunteer application and present it to their location.  Upon approval of the application, the volunteer will be directed to register with Catholic Mutual Group’s on-line CMGConnect program. 


The CMGConnect program will provide the “Safe Haven-It’s Up To You” safe environment training video, Pastoral and Technology Codes of Conduct concluding with a background check.  Once the process is completed the sponsoring location will be notified of the applicants’ eligibility to volunteer.


Thank you for your commitment to ensure that all parishes and schools within the Diocese of Lexington are places of safety for all children and vulnerable adults.
