SJH is able to carry out its mission thanks to the generosity of the hundreds of volunteers who provide over 40,000 hours of service each year. We could not survive without this generous outpouring of time and talent.

Please be sure to schedule your volunteer time in advance. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator today and let them know what day works best for you. Please note: there are no weekend volunteer opportunities.

  • Schools, Confirmation, Youth Ministry
    Please note that SJH cannot accommodate on site volunteer service for children under the age of 18. However, there are wonderful ways to teach young people about the joy of service to God’s beloved poor. Just choose a time of the year that works for you. Plan a collection with a class or classes, and have the children write notes or greeting cards to attach to the items. For details on this and other off-site opportunities, please contact the Saint John’s Volunteer Coordinator
  • For Our Casserole Parishes
    Just gather some items (don’t forget the guys when you are going through your closets) and take them to your Casserole drop-off location. These items will be picked up along with the casseroles.
