Giving the Gift of Time

De Mazenod Door Outreach is fully dependent on its volunteer base. Volunteers are properly screened, registered, oriented and then scheduled depending upon their preference of program, ministry, event or day of the week (weekday vs. weekend). Volunteers can choose to be on site regularly (weekly or monthly), based on their schedule and our need. Some volunteers choose to volunteer their time to do pick-ups or cooking meals for daily hot lunches.

Forging Friendships

Volunteers are the lifelines of our parishes and ministries. Without the time, effort and gifts of our volunteers, we simply would not be able to fulfill this or any ministry to help those in need. We recognize and appreciate the invaluable contributions of our many volunteers. Through Screening in Faith, we can provide support and protection to our volunteers. Our actions as volunteers and as a Church, while performing our ministries, should be guided at all times by our goal: the protection and safety of our vulnerable people, our volunteers and our Church.
