Our Parishes are Hiring!
The Catholic Churches in Cowlitz County are hiring! This is a full time, but temporary (at least three months) position with full benefits. Specifically, we need help launching our children’s faith formation and youth programs this fall. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we just can’t do what we have done in the past so we are going to be building a brand new program and we need help. The person in this position will be working with elementary school students, middle school students, and high school students although most of the work will be with our elementary school students and their families. This person will help us strategize a new model of faith formation for our parish that includes ordinary faith formation and sacramental preparation for first reconciliation, first communion, and confirmation. It is a big job even though it is a temporary job. It is also a great way to get some good experience in ministry. The person in this ministry must be a practicing Catholic who, if married, has a valid marriage in the Church. The person in this ministry will need great organizational skills and also have excellent written and oral communication skills. The person in this ministry does not need to speak Spanish, but it would help as we have many families who speak Spanish. You will be helping us develop the best way to teach our faith to these different age groups under COVID-19 restrictions, and we are open to new, creative ideas. We need a team player who is able to work well with volunteers and staff. If you are interested in applying, please contact the office of one of our parishes. Obviously, since this position requires contact with children and minors, whomever is hired will need to pass a background check and be Virtus Certified. Please contact any of our parish offices to get an application packet. The phone number for St. Rose in Longview is 360-201-4517. You can reach Immaculate Heart of Mary in Kelso at 360-423-3650. Even if this job is not for you, please pass this message along to anyone you think might be interested in the position. Finally please pray for us to fill this position with a great candidate who loves God and wants to pass our beautiful faith onto our youth. Thank you and God Bless! Fr. Bryan
