Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House Volunteer Information

One of the many blessings of working at or being involved with Fatima Retreat House is that of the people here, especially our volunteers. Each of you brings a grace and presence to our ministry that is life-giving. We are most grateful to every one of you no matter how you choose to serve here. May God bless you abundantly for all that you do to keep our ministry thriving!

Welcome to our page for current volunteers. This page will contain information about all currently scheduled volunteer league events, business meetings or other activities related to the ministry of the retreat house in which the league members are involved.

ALL volunteers are considered members of the league and may feel free to participate as much as desired in any scheduled meetings or events.

A huge thanks to our 2017 leadership team for our volunteer league: . Nancy Lee, Susan Delisle, Paula Korzekwa, Donna Ward & Jan Ash

Also thanks to those who have a special role in organizing some of our special events: Gary Millikan, Diane Eastman, Marleen Norton, Ruth Fegan, Peggy Steinbacher, Mike Boyle and Theresa Fields

We are looking for willing volunteers to be mentored by these individuals to secure the future success of our volunteer league events which all support the ministry of Fatima!

An important reminder to all volunteers and our NEW volunteers!

  • We are all asked to do our part to keep children safe in all of our communities, parishes, and agencies. A large part of this effort comes through educating ourselves on any potential signs of abuse including physical, mental and emotional. Any employee or volunteer of the archdiocese is required to complete Safe and Sacred. It only needs to be completed once for any and all parishes, agencies or other archdiocesan entities. Please click here to complete this online training. It takes about one to one and a half hours to complete. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR HELPING TO KEEP ALL CHILDREN SAFE.
  • Please note: there are follow up bulletins posted underneath the area where your name badges hang. Please take a moment to check these bulletin updates which contain pertinent and helpful articles to keep us all informed about how to keep children safe! Thank you!

Many hands make light work!
It is a busy season here at the retreat house and we are always looking to add additional helpers to our volunteer family. Now is an especially good time to spread the word about Fatima's ministry! Please help us by inviting others whom you think might benefit from volunteering here. Contact Mary O'Brien if you have any questions.

Remember...We are happy to have you come and visit even when you are not scheduled to volunteer! Join us any time to come and pray in the chapel, walk the trails, visit the shrine, pray the outdoor Stations of the Cross or pray the Labyrinth.
