Programs

Vacation Bible School

Volunteers offer an experience of bible study, prayer, arts and crafts, recreation, music and refreshments for our children during VBS, which is held for one week each August.

Religious Education

Those involved in the ministry of religious education foster the spiritual formation of the children of the parish through weekly instructions for children in grades 1-10 and preparation for the sacraments. Volunteers in this ministry serve as catechists, aides, substitutes, monitors and babysitters for those teaching. They help, as well, in other ways that keep the program running smoothly. Being involved in this ministry requires a weekly commitment of time, generally from late September to early May. The time commitment can range from one to three hours per week. Volunteers need to have a desire to work with children, a willingness to be trained and to share their faith, a commitment to nurture their own faith, and a commitment to the teachings of our Church. Interviews are required of all volunteers.

Youth Ministry

Youth retreats and other special programs are part of the Confirmation program. Eleventh and 12th grade students are charged with teaching 7th and 8th graders as they prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Adult and student volunteers are needed to assist the students not only in this preparatory program but in special events and general youth activities, as well. This ministry is part of the Immaculate Conception Church’s Religious Education program.
