Volunteer At Holy Family

Volunteers are vital to Holy Family’s mission: “To empower all to experience New Life In Christ through sacramental living, transformative worship, lifelong spiritual growth and community in service to others.”  During the current Covid-19 pandemic, while following the CDC and Archdiocese of Chicago procedures, we are offering sacramental events which require many volunteers.  Other volunteer opportunities will be added as needed that continue to follow safety procedures.

If you are interested in volunteering specifically with the funeral, wedding and/or baptism ministry as a greeter or usher, contact Sue Geegan at 847-420-5191 for more information.

Greeters are needed to welcome and check in guests and Ushers are needed to seat and dismiss guests for Masses, Funerals, Weddings, Baptisms, Adoration, and Reconciliation. Other sacramental events, such as 1st Communion, will also take place during the year. You decide what event you volunteer for and at what frequency, whether it’s once a week or once a month.   Anyone 16 years and older is eligible to volunteer.  

To sign up we ask that you use the button below.  If you are a first-time Greeter/Usher volunteer, choose a Trainee spot at any Mass and arrive at the designated time for proper training.  

Sign the waiver which is available by clicking the button below.  Send it to Scott at [email protected] electronically or bring it with you when you train.
