In order to volunteer with our parish, you must be a registered member of our parish in good standing for at least one year. All volunteers of our parish must attend a Protecting God’s Children (PGC) class; a workshop intended to educate volunteers to recognize and prevent sexual abuse. Registration is required for the workshop and may be done online. Workshops are generally offered throughout the year at different parishes across the Diocese of Charlotte. After the workshop, participants are required to maintain certification by participating in monthly online bulletins followed by a short questionnaire. These monthly training reminders are distributed via the email you provide when you register online for the PGC class. Failure to maintain certification through these monthly bulletins will result in a lapse in certification that would require participants to begin the certification anew and could possibly interrupt the volunteer’s ability to participate in active ministry.
Below are the steps required to become a ministry volunteer at St. Aloysius:
To register with our parish, please complete the online registration form. Once your completed registration, your registration is in pending status. Once we have received verification of your Sacraments, you will be notified of the status of your request.

COVID19 UPDATE: During the Pandemic, most workshops are being offered remotely. You will be emailed a link to the meeting after you have selected a location and registered online.
