​Postions of Trust - ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Ministry Position Descriptions​​ ​

The ministry positions listed below are considered positions with an added level of responsibility, including working with vulnerable persons. For this reason, these positions are considered Positions of Trust and require screening.

Af​ter reviewing the position description, you may complete the Volunteer Application Form and submit to your parish directly. A representative from the Parish Volunteer Screening Committee will contact you for an in-person interview.

After a successful interview you will receive instructions to obtain an Enhanced Criminal Records Check (E-PIC) check online. Once the criminal records check has cleared and your 3-references have been contacted, the Parish Volunteer Screening Committee will contact you with next steps in your ministry position. The Parish Guidelines for Volunteers (Positions of Trust) should be reviewed prior to beginning your ministry position.

Please note that each parish is unique and may have a position at the parish that does not appear on the list below. In cases such as these, a ministry position description can be created. The Parish Volunteer Screening Coordinator may consult with the Volunteer Screening Department at the Archdiocese of Toronto to have this ministry position description created for the specific role.
