Help in the Religious Exploration Program

There are many ways you can support the religious exploration program. We are seeking seniors, adults, young adults and senior youth to help make this an extraordinary program for our treasured children and youth. The time commitment varies — it could be as little as once a year or as often as once a week, and depends on the role you are interested in filling.

Please contact Kate Huband (705) 741-0968 if you are interested or would like to find out more!
