Faith in Action Volunteers

Salt and Light for the World

We are dedicated to being the salt of the earth and the light of the world through our service to others in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi.  That’s what “Faith in Action” is really all about! The following list is offered to start a dialogue about where you can help:

Please follow this link for the Safe Environment Training (SET) details and links for FIA ministry members. 

The FRC is taking a more proactive stance in the safety of the community. In this time of concern throughout the church, organizations must demonstrate the highest integrity in this matter. In order to have credibility, every employee and volunteer—both new and someone who has served for a long time—must participate.  Without the SET and the Criminal Background Check, individuals will not be permitted to volunteer or be employed at the Franciscan Renewal Center (FRC).

Thank you to all Casa/FIA volunteers who have completed the SET Renewal or Foundational Training class and background checks.
