Stewardship Opportunities

ReRuns R Fun Sale! Please see the flyer to learn about how you can help at ReRuns R Fun! This opportunity is really a win for everyone because you can earn stewardship hours AND for every 50 hours volunteer that our parents fill, $500 comes back to our school! ReRuns is very generous to St. Columbkille parish and school, so we love to partner with them as much as we can.

Home Renovation Project! Mr. Heese is looking for volunteers who are able to provide advice and to work in the following areas: electrical, plumbing, wood floor refinishing, insulating, framing, drywalling and painting. It would be nice if you were available to assist Mr. Hesse during the day, but it might also be possible to work on your own during evenings and weekends. Click this link for more information, or contact Mr. Hesse contact or by calling him at (402) 616-4740.

School lunch program! Our program runs primarily by the use of parent (and even grandparent!) volunteers. We need 3 volunteers each day in order for things to run smoothly. If you are interested in helping us out and earning Parent Stewardship Hours in the process, please sign up via the SignUp Genius link here. Your children will be so happy to see you behind the lunch counter! :)

CARE Sales! The CARE (Cards Are Rewards for Education) is a parishioner-operated St. Columbkille parish and school fundraiser. Gift cards are purchased by CARE at a discount (from 2%-20% off! And resold at face value. CARE retains the discount as profit and returns 100% of money earned to St. Columbkille by funding various school and parish needs. Care has many ongoing opportunities to get involved. To volunteer, use the link to SignUp Genius here.

Barton Tutors Needed! As the new school year begins, our need for Barton tutors has increased. A waiting list is beginning to develop. The Barton Reading and Spelling System is a one-on-one tutoring system which, for almost twenty years, has been helping struggling readers and spellers succeed. Training for new volunteer tutors to work with St. Columbkille students will be held soon. No previous teaching experience is needed.  The only prerequisites are good hearing, two available hours a week, and a commitment to help a child become a better reader.

Morning Safety Squad! St. Columbkille has a plan to make our campus even safer with our Morning Safety Squad. We’re looking for parent volunteers to be on-site daily during the opening of the school when our building is most vulnerable. Our goal is to position volunteers at block corners and near doors as an added pair of eyes and a noticeable presence for all to see. Parent guards are becoming very common nationwide in schools and churches to deter potential problems. The hours required are 7:45 AM to 8:01 AM on school days. We will train, but the duty is simple: smile to all, and have your cell phone ready to call 911 if there are any problems. To participate in this important program contact Michael Bilgere at and sign up using the SignUp Genius at:


Faith Formation Opportunities! Remember that participating in faith formation activities such as Adoration, MOMS of Faith, and attending HSA meetings and the Parish Mission count towards your Stewardship Hours requirement.
