Pre-Jordan Teachers

We are looking for a few MDP couples to volunteer to teach Pre-Jordan classes a few times a year on a rotating basis with other teaching couples.  These classes prepare parents for the Baptism of their first child.  Teaching materials and training will be provided.  Click here to volunteer.



Care Ministers

Volunteers help visit our homebound parishioners, paying periodic friendly visits.  In December, parishioners bake homemade cookies, which are packaged by our care ministers and delivered to the homebound.  Care ministers also assist in the Mass with the Anointing of the Sick, helping to welcome and register those in attendance.  Unfortunately many of these tasks have been suspended due to COVID-19, but please reach out if you would like to participate in the future.  Click here to visit the Care Ministers website page.  Click here to volunteer.

St. John’s Hospice Casseroles

We support the work of St. John’s Hospice with the homeless in Philadelphia through our casserole program.   Volunteers make meals which St. John’s then uses to feed those in need.  Trays and suggested recipes are located in the church vestibule.
