Your Parish Religious Education Program at Resurrection Church is dependent on volunteers, both teaching and non-teaching.
In the school year 2017/18 we had 140 volunteer Catechists and many non-teaching volunteers who contributed to the success of the program. We are very grateful to these dedicated people and invite you to contribute to the religious education experience either in the classroom as a Catechist, Co-Catechist, or Aide, or as a non-teaching volunteer to provide the best learning environment for all our students. We are sometimes in need of volunteers with Special Education training so if you are in that field we would love to hear from you.
