Adult Volunteers

Our programs are successful because of our volunteers. There are many opportunities, big and small, for adults to lend a hand. Safety is our top priority. If you can share your time with our 7th & 8th graders and help provide a safe environment for YM activities and events, please contact Ruthie Patterson at youthministry@iccparish.org or call 410 392 3551.

You can also download and print a brochure with details and job descriptions for volunteer opportunities with 7th & 8th grade students.

Pilgrimage (diocesan)

This is an annual event started in 2010 and held on the Saturday of Palm Sunday weekend. Young people, young adults, youth ministry leaders, and families are invited to join the Bishop as we carry a replica of the World Youth Day cross through the streets of Wilmington as a representation of Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem and his journey on Good Friday to Calvary.

The day begins with an opening prayer and includes Reconciliation, Eucharistic Adoration, a concert with a Catholic musician, and liturgy with the Bishop. A service component was added to the day’s events beginning in 2011. View the [YouTube]  Video about this event.
