A Catholic Parish


Our Lady of the Visitation has a dynamic, friendly and outgoing team of fundraising volunteers who make things happen in the Parish. Fundraising not only brings in money that goes toward the restoration fund but also provides the opportunity for parishioners and friends of the parish to work together building new friendships while deepening their faith. There are many events to volunteer for as listed below. Volunteer a few hours on a regular basis or once a year for other events. To quote old verbiage: "Many hands make light work!"
