Featured Volunteer Need: Kitchen Help

Share an evening meal with the sisters

Volunteers are needed to set out a simple supper of soup and sandwiches (prepped by the fulltime cook) and to clean up the kitchen and dishes after the meal. The time commitment is 3 pm – 7pm, and you are welcome to dine with the sisters. If you enjoy being in the kitchen and have one or more afternoons available, this opportunity might be for you!

Current volunteer opportunities

Drivers

Several sisters are unable to drive due to diminished eyesight. Licensed and insured drivers who are comfortable transporting less ambulatory sisters to medical appointments are needed. If you prefer, you may also drive the monastery's healthcare vehicle.

Sister Ana is also seeking several drivers who would be able to drive her from the monastery to Shove Chapel on the Colorado College campus on Thursday evening, one way or round trip. This is an important outreach ministry to college students for Sister Ana!

Administrative help

Volunteers are needed for short-term projects for Mission Advancement and Communications. If you like working alone and are comfortable doing data entry / editing with computers, this opportunity might be for you! Time commitment is flexible.

Additional ways to engage

Indoors or outdoors? Regular schedule or on-call? Retail or facilities? We have options:

Forest Maintenance

Kathy, OblSB

For Kathy, an oblate from Pueblo, CO, volunteering is a family affair. She’s pictured here with her daughter Megan, son Ryan, Kathy, and Sister Jan Ginzkey, OSB.

"There's nothing like a day in the forest! It was so satisfying to work with others, and know that we were caring for the earth all together.

– Kathy Bell
