Volunteer Screening Program Updates & Events

National Volunteer Week 2020 - April 19 - 25

Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. - 1 Peter 3: 10

Every day across the Archdiocese of Toronto, parishioners give their time and talent to nurture and strengthen the faith experience of the Catholic community, and announce the Gospel. From the tireless work of volunteer council members, event organizers and liturgical hospitality teams, to the faith-affirming efforts of Catechists, Lay Pastoral Visitors and Baptismal Preparation teams, parish volunteers are the heart of the archdiocesan call to service.




Updated Website - September 2019

The Volunteer Screening Department at the Archdiocese is excited to announce a complete revamp of the Volunteer Screening website! The redesign is focused on helping parishioners and members of the public find the right ministry and understand how volunteer screening works.

Volunteer Appreciation Week - April 7-13, 2019

We celebrate the many volunteers who contribute energy, enthusiasm and countless hours to create a culture of giving in our parish communities.  Our volunteers give their time, talents and experience to benefit the communities without expecting anything in return.  We are grateful to our volunteers who dedicate their time serving others.
