Parish Life Liaisons

Volunteer Opportunities at the Archdiocese of San Antonio

The parish is where the Church lives. Parishes are communities of faith, of action, and of hope. They are where the Gospel is proclaimed and celebrated, where believers are formed and sent to renew the earth. Parishes are the home of the Christian community; they are the heart of our Church. Parishes are the place where God's people meet Jesus in word and sacrament and come in touch with the source of the Church's life. (USCCB - Communities of Salt and Light


Attention parishes!
Parish Life Liaisons are here to serve you!

The Archdiocesan team for Parish Life exists to resource, journey, empower, discern, and identify pastoral ministry options for parishes and to provide available tools so that every parish is a vibrant community.


Parish Life Liaisons

The Archdiocesan Parish Life team is composed of Parish Life Liaisons who are the primary point of contact, in areas of pastoral ministry, between parishes and the Archdiocesan Department of Pastoral Ministries. They have a broad perspective of all programs regarding Religious Education, Sacraments preparation, Liturgies, Leadership training, and events offered by the Department.

Each Parish Life Liaison has been assigned to serve specific parishes and deaneries as the main contact for inquiries related to Pastoral Ministries. They are available to accompany Pastors and their parish communities as needed. In an effort to build community, each Parish Life Liaison in the team continues to reach out to their respective parishes to listen and identify parochial needs. They provide approved resources or assist in finding alternatives that follow the Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan under a Culture of Encounter through visits and participation in meetings as frequently as needed and as authorized by the Pastor.

Contact your Parish Life Liaison or the Director of the team at any time to obtain information and support for your pastoral needs in areas of:

•  Liturgical Trainings

•  Marriage Preparation

•  Faith Formation

• Pastoral Council

•  V Encuentro

• And much more!
