We want to meet you!

Join us as a volunteer at Saint Mary’s. Our volunteers play an important role in the lives of the sisters and we rely on the dedication of volunteers to help us meet our mission, vision and goals. During an orientation program, you will meet sisters and staff, review the guidelines for volunteers, and discuss how to match your skills and interests with available volunteer opportunities. Several times throughout the year, there will be additional opportunities for socialization with the sisters and other volunteers. These special events are great fun!
