Mary of Nazareth is successful because of our families!
Mary of Nazareth Catholic School’s mission is to prepare students for lives of service to God and neighbor. The philosophy of the Mary of Nazareth Volunteer Program is that our families are an example to our students, living out the Gospel teachings by serving the school, parish and larger community. Through the school’s vibrant and comprehensive volunteer opportunities, each family is asked to give of their time and talent at a minimum of ten hours per year.
Volunteering your time is an inexpensive way to meet the needs of our school, make an effective contribution to your child’s school experience, and show your child that you value their interests.
Current volunteer opportunities can be viewed HERE!
*Please note that Archdiocesan Virtus training and background checks are required for all volunteer service. Steps to register for Virtus training and complete background checks are detailed to the right under Child Protection Policy for Volunteers.
