Current Volunteer Opportunities
Our Fiesta Committee is working tirelessly behind-the-scenes for the big weekend. You can help them make this year's Fiesta the best ever! Fiesta volunteers provide the "people power" for our raffle ticket distribution, our game booths, our food booths, and the crews that set up and clean up. OLA's Fiesta is a community effort — that doesn't mean we can't enjoy ourselves along the way! In fact, nothing is more satisfying than working together for a good cause. Come, build an OLA tradition. School parents can earn service hours, too!
Help is needed for all food and game booths, set-up and clean-up. Call the Fiesta Message Center at (909) 626-3596, ext. 4319 or come to the patio after all Masses April 22-23 and May 8-9.
