The Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) is committed to providing an environment that helps bring youth to their fullest potential by allowing them opportunities to develop strong moral character, self-esteem, and leadership qualities through activities of a social, educational, recreational, and athletic nature.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING THE CYO PROGRAM FOR THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR
CYO Volunteer Coordinator Needed
We are looking for a volunteer (or volunteers/team) to coordinate/oversee our parish/school youth sports program (CYO, Catholic Youth Organization). The purpose of the CYO/Sports Program is to provide an enjoyable, instructive and positive sporting environment where participants can learn the fundamentals of a sport, teamwork, and other life skills consistent with our Christian faith. CYO plays a competitive schedule against other Catholic parishes in Mercer County. The parish provides the support and resources for the smooth running of the program. We are hoping to get a person (or persons) in place as soon as possible to plan for the Spring Season, which includes soccer and track. Without a coordinator, the parish cannot participate in CYO sports. Those interested should contact Gary Maccaroni at 609-882-6491, or email@example.com.

ALL CYO VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN SAFE ENVIRONMENT TRAINING.
The Diocese of Trenton requires that everyone who has regular contact with children in church ministry must participate in a safe environment training program called “Protecting God’s Children” produced by the Virtus Corporation. This requirement is part of the Diocese’s efforts to provide a safe environment for children who participate in all of the various ministries of the church.
