Parish Opportunities and Initiatives


Volunteering with Youth

Are you interested in volunteering your time and efforts with the youth in the parish? The Diocese of Green Bay requires all volunteers 18 years and older to complete a Virtus training session prior to volunteering AND to register for a background check through eAppsDB. For an overview, click HERE

Virtus: You will need to register for a classroom setting training and an online profile. To get started, click HERE or go to Virtusonline.org. Next, click the green button on the left (under login box) that says First Time Registrant. To find a training, you will need to find the Green Bay Diocese in the drop-down menu and continue through to a date and location that work best and complete the registration. To create a profile, you will again need to find the Green Bay Diocese in the drop-down menu. You will be prompted to create a username and password. Please keep your login information in a safe location. The Virtus website has a lot of information and monthly bulletins that you can access at any time. It is a great resource for volunteers, teachers and parents, to keeping up to date with safety concerns. 

Background Check: You will need to register for a background check HERE. You can also access the site through the Green Bay Diocese site: http://www.gbdioc.org/ministry-formation-portal/safe-environment/background-checks-eapps.html and will need to click on the eAppDB link. When prompted, you will need to enter gbdioc04 in the box marked access code. You will need this to complete the application.  

Both the Virtus training AND a background check are required prior to volunteering to be in compliance. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Erin Day, LoSEC Administrator at 920-739-4157.

Catholic Buiild- Habitat for Humanity- 2019

Jesus challenged us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. A great way to love your neighbor is by volunteering for the Fox Cities Habitat for Humanity Catholic Build!

Habitat for Humanity is providing us a chance to, once again, extend a helping hand by practicing our faith to help another Catholic family. The crew from Saint Bernadette Parish will be working on Thursday, April 4; Thursday, May 2 at different locations (see link below for details.)

We are in need of a site support person, a meal provider(s), and crew members.

Please go to the website: https://foxcitieshabitat.volunteerhub.com/lp/stbernadette to find out how you can help.

We will also be making a financial contribution of $5,000 to the 2019 Build. We are incorporating this collection with our Lenten Mission Collection. If we do not reach our goal. we will have a special collection in early May. We ask you to share your time, talent and treasure. Thank you!
