Volunteer Opportunities for Middle and High School

Serving teenagers is more than just helping the next generation grow in their faith. Whether you are a small group leader, donating food to feed the youth, taking out the trash or simply chaperoning an event, YOU are making a difference in the lives of these youth. If you are interested in helping out in any of the following areas, please contact the Religious Education Office at 757-421-7416 OR religiousedu@ssmrcc.org

There are many different opportunities to get involved in our youth ministry. Here are a few ways:
