Volunteers at St James Parish

Thank you to the many volunteers in our Parish who give of their time, talents and gifts to make our community as vibrant and engaging as it is.

If you are a new volunteer or are considering becoming one, and would like to be involved in one of the ministries at St James, or a current volunteer who has yet to attend our Volunteer Induction, we would like to invite you to the next Volunteer Induction meeting on Wed 06 Nov at 7:00pm-8:30pm.

Serving in a ministry at St James will require you to attend this meeting for induction and all current volunteers are expected to attend a Volunteer Induction.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the community and we seek to support you in all ways necessary to assist you in your service.

On Thurs 23 Feb, the Parish held a New Volunteers Induction and Information Evening, sharing the vision of the Parish, the Charism of the Paulist Missionaries and what it means to be a volunteer with St James.  Here is what a Parishioner had to say about it:

On Thursday 23rd February a large group of members of the parish gathered to find out how to use their gifts within the family of St James.

As a new member to the parish I was surprised at the number of volunteer groups I could join.   The work that these groups participate in makes the parish of St James the vibrant parish that it is. It appears that no matter your talents there is a place for you within this parish to live out your faith. It was made very clear at the meeting that we all work together and that, included Fr. Jude. Although he undertakes the responsibilities of the parish and we are his helpers , he does not see himself as being at the top directing, but rather, the one who steers and stirs the talents of his parishioners to make us one, as well as being the mediator if the need should arise.

We were taken through the parish mission statement and the Paulist Missionaries’ charism. Geralyn also outlined the duties and responsibilities of a volunteer and discussed the importance of Child Safety and how this is being implemented in our parish by going through the Victorian Child Safe Standards. A great deal of information was covered and we ended the meeting with a hot drink and time to talk to the many group leaders that attended. At the end I felt that I would be welcomed into whichever group I would join no matter what my talents are.
