Thank you for considering volunteering at St. Michael Catholic Church! We have an active volunteer community and there are many stewardship opportunities. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit our ministry pages for more information. If you have questions, please contact the office or send us an inquiry via the form below.
The Archdiocese of Seattle requires the following for volunteers:
1. Background Checks
Volunteers with unsupervised, ongoing access to minors and vulnerable adults are required to complete a background check every three years. Screening is also required from any volunteer with access to cash, checks or other negotiables; any volunteer driving in the course of their service; and any volunteer who is not related to a student in a Catholic school. If you feel you have not satisfied this requirement consult your local coordinator before completing one through your Virtus profile.
All volunteers are required to read and sign the Policy for the Prevention of and Response to Sexual Abuse, Code of Professional Conduct, and Reporting Suspected Abuse of Minors and Vulnerable Adults. If you have not signed these, you may do so through your Virtus profile.
3. Safe Environment Training
Volunteers with unsupervised, ongoing access to minors and vulnerable adults are required to complete the Protecting God's Children course within 90 days of beginning service. Current volunteers are required to take updated online training courses every three years.
