Cookie Coordinator

Home and School is looking for someone to help coordinate Cookies with the Crusaders (formerly Muffins after Mass). There are two dates this year, Nov. 17 and Jan. 26 and time commitment is approximately 4-5 hours for each date. Duties include sending information to teachers, getting the cookies and supplies and making sure things thing run smoothly. It's an easy way to get some volunteer hours and a great way to meet St. Al's families. If you are interested or have questions, please email Thanks!

Want to Volunteer

We need many volunteers throughout the year to help our school be as successful as it is!

How to Volunteer: Log into Sycamore and see the MANY opportunities (new opportunities are added almost weekly)!

Most of these opportunities require the volunteers to meet the Archdiocese's Essential 3 Requirements (please note this is not unique to St. Al's - but across the Archdiocese)! Details on how to become E3 qualified are attached to this newsletter. If at any time you ever have any questions about this process, please connect with Sarah Gerads at Thank you for your continued support of St. Al's.
