Volunteering is a vital and treasured part of participating in the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch, the parishes, communities and support entities, because together we are truly ‘one body of Christ’.

Volunteering is a rewarding way to have new experiences as part of your church. We invite you to step up, get involved, and help out. There are a variety of roles to suit your gifts, interests, and availability. 

Such opportunities include: 

  • Ministry of the Word, 
  • Ministry of the Eucharist, 
  • Ministry of the Sick 
  • Sacristans
  • Youth – Group Leaders 
  • Music 
  • Alpha 
  • Sunday Mass helpers – greeters, collectors, projectionists, 
  • Church cleaners, 
  • Altar Society / flower arrangers

Please make contact with your local parish or any of our many catholic entities to see how you can use your gifts and talents.

For additional information, our Safeguarding website has information on the ministries in parishes and volunteer roles.
