Our parish offers a nursery on the first floor of the Faith and Family Center for young children, ages nine months to five years, during all weekend Masses. All parishioners are welcome to take advantage of this service for their children. Volunteers, who have completed the Protecting God’s Children program and a fingerprint background check, are needed to assist the nursery directors. We are looking for individuals for all weekend Mass times to work in the nursery. Individuals need to be able to work weekends, be 18 or older, and have completed Protecting Gods Children. A background check is also required. We ask that you be able to commit to a minimum of 3 Mass times per month. Pay rate is $11.50/hour. We are also seeking middle school and high school volunteers. Service hours are provided!


Why should I attend PGC now?

Attending a PGC seminar now helps you in the future too! You only need to attend once. Doing so now, at our parish, provides the proper documentation right away! If you decide to attend on a different date, you will need to forward your certificate of completion to Jennifer Glassmire in the SJN office. Once you have completed the PGC seminar, you do not need to attend again since you will have met the requirements to work with children of the parish.

Background checks are expensive and since I have to get one to work in a school, why should I spend more money now?

We have worked out a discounted rate of $65 with Celtic Security (who also provides fingerprinting for Olentangy Schools). To volunteer in most area schools, you will also need to have a background check. At the time of fingerprinting, you may ask that your results be sent to your resident school. This will save you time and money in the long run. If you have had your background check completed within the last 11 months, you should be able to request that a copy be sent to the Diocese for a small fee.

We need all reports sent directly to:
