Volunteer Information

Good Shepherd Parish is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for everyone, especially our children and youth.  All volunteers must be in compliance with all regulations of both the Diocese of  Altoona-Johnstown and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  We know there's a lot to do and it can seem complicated and we GREATLY appreciate your patience and willingness to comply with the regulations to help keep our young people as safe as possible. 

We hope that these steps help put an end to child abuse in our community. 

For any questions about these requirements, please contact :
