Volunteer Opportunities

Below are some of our volunteer opportunities for the school year 2017 – 2018.  There are many opportunities to get in your required 20 hours of service completed by April 30, 2018.  Just a reminder that 20 service hours or $25.00 per each uncompleted service hours are due in the office by May 1, 2018.  (Click here for the link to the service hour form).

Grandparents are welcome to complete 1/2 of your required service hours.

Christ the King, administration, staff and students value our volunteers more than you will ever know.  We could not have the great programs and events we presently have without your many hours of dedicated service.  Please remember that in order to volunteer in any capacity at Christ the King School and Church you must have attended a session of Protecting God’s Children and have a current background check on file with the Diocese Office.
