You must be a practicing Catholic or a person willing to live in a Catholic faith community, with a heart for the poor. You should be dedicated, enthusiastic, self-motivated, and open to personal and professional growth for your service year.
Volunteers are asked first and foremost to participate in daily Mass, community prayer and to take personal prayer time. We need to draw our strength from the Lord if we are to give more of ourselves to our ministry. The main job of the volunteers is to prepare, serve, and clean up for daily meals. Shopping for meals, organizing donations, keeping the houses clean and supervising groups that volunteer with us are all part of the job as well. Of course, as with anything, there are miscellaneous tasks that need to be taken care of on a daily or weekly basis.
