Call for Volunteers for Family Faith Fest

Posted inLocal News

Hundreds of people will be volunteering at the Family Faith Fest to ensure a great experience for all participants. There are some volunteer positions that still need to be filled and the application process is available online:

Volunteers are asked to have a welcoming attitude, the joy of the Lord in their hearts and a desire to share the joy of their faith.

“We are seeking joy-filled people that not only want to be enriched during the Family Faith Fest but want to enrich others through their service,” said Diane Kledzik, chair of the Fest Volunteer Committee and Diocese of St. Petersburg’s Director of Marriage and Family Life.

The minimum age to volunteer is 16 and the shifts will vary from one to two hours. Most volunteer positions will require walking, standing, and physical activity.

The plan is to keep the shift time short so volunteers will be able to enjoy the activities of the Family Faith Fest as well as help out.

“If you are able to volunteer one shift, that will matter a lot to us and you will still have the opportunity to enjoy the Fest with family and friends,” added Kledzik.

Everyone will receive some sort of training either before the event or at the event.

The deadline to sign up to volunteer is Oct. 5. To learn all the details, requirements and volunteer positions, visit

By joining together as one Body of Christ, our community can grow in faith and grow in unity!
