St. Louis de Montfort offers a variety of Worship and Liturgy ministries and opportunities to volunteer with these ministries. Please contact the designated person listed if you would like more information about a particular ministry.

“All the earth worships thee; they sing praises to thee, sing praises to thy name." [Selah] Psalm 66:4

All of our Parish volunteers are required to fill out a Criminal Background Check, a Code of Conduct, and to attend VIRTUS Training and to update that training each month via training bulletins on the Internet. This is extremely important, so that we, as a Church, can take every possible step to protect our children and vulnerable adults.

To register for VIRTUS go to the diocesan website (drvc.org) and click on the VIRTUS Training Calendar link. After you create a user Id and password you can register for training sessions.
