Parents are expected to perform at least 40 hours of service/30 hours for single-parent families (three of which will be helping with the Parish Ball) each year. There is a parent service fee of $450 per family or $350 per single-parent family due each year if service hours are not completed. For those families who perform the service, the fee is rolled-over to the following year.
If hours are not performed or only partially performed, the fee is pro-rated at $15 per hour.

As a part of updated safety protocols, all volunteers who work with students in any capacity must be BOTH Virtus and background checked (fingerprinted) with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. 
The Archdiocese of Los Angeles mandates all clergy, staff, whether paid or volunteer, and all volunteers who work in any capacity with or around children, the elderly, or people with special needs to complete the initial three-hour VIRTUS® Protecting God’s Children for Adults™ program. The program helps clergy, staff, volunteers, and parents to understand the facts and myths about child sexual abuse, how perpetrators groom children and young people, and how they, as caring adults, can learn and implement the important “Five Step Plan” to Protect God’s Children in helping to prevent child sexual abuse.

Please submit all Virtus certificates to St. Anastasia via email so we can add your information to our database: [email protected].
All volunteers also must submit a background check (fingerprinting) through the LA Archdiocese, even if you have already been fingerprinted with other organizations.
St. Anastasia offers several opportunities for on-campus fingerprinting, and there are many options to schedule an appointment through other parishes as well. LA Archdiocese offers sessions at their office as well on Wednesdays - appointments required.
