Why Should YOU Volunteer for the FEST?


The FEST is a success each year because of our amazing volunteers. The FEST has over 1,500 people helping in different areas from running activities, to parking cars, to setting up the stage. Volunteers are the backbone of the FEST and we simply would not be able to function without our army of volunteers for the Lord!  That is why we need YOUR help and here are 5 reasons why you should sign up to volunteer for the FEST!

1. Volunteers make the FEST possible!  With 38,000+ people at the FEST, there is much to be done and the FEST requires many hands to make this event function.  We need 1,500 volunteers to be with us on August 3rd to help us make this day of Faith, Fun, and Family an amazing day for all attending the FEST!

2. There are so many areas to help with! Whether you would like to greet people as they enter, help park cars, help set up the stage, or assist with the mass, there are plenty of opportunities to help.  This year we are especially looking for ushers to help us in the mass, so please consider volunteering as an usher! Here is a list of volunteer opportunities descriptions: https://thefest.us/volunteer-job-descriptions/

3. Volunteering helps keep the FEST free! This is the fourteenth annual year that the FEST will be free and open to all.  This way, families and individuals across the diocese and beyond can afford to attend the FEST and participate in the live music, activities, and opportunities to grow in faith.  There are many people who would not be able to come to the FEST if this amazing day had a price.  We need your help to keep the FEST free and accessible to all of God’s children.

4. You can work with an AMAZING groups of Volunteers! Volunteering provides a unique opportunity to meet incredible people you can serve with.  Many volunteers return each year to reconnect with others that they only get to see at the FEST.  Being a volunteer allows you to experience a more universal church and serve alongside a wonderful group of people.  This is a one-of-a-kind chance to be a part of community much larger than oneself!

5. This is a wonderful opportunity to Serve the LORD! God calls us to serve others.  Volunteering for the FEST allows you not only to directly serve those you meet at the FEST, but to benefit all those who attend by being part of making this day possible.  What better way to serve than to help create a day that brings people together in fellowship and faith.  “The fruit of prayer is Faith, the fruit of Faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace” – (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta).
