PARISH CORPORATORS

In a parish, the lay corporators are of the corporate directors of the parish non-profit corporation established under Maryland law. Corporators oversee the actions of the parish from a high level.
Lay corporators can be attorneys, business people, IT people or other parishioners who are knowledgeable about the activities of the parish and understand how corporations are run. They should be parishioners. They cannot serve on the Parish Council and/or the Finance Council at the same time they are a corporator.

VIRTUS FOR PARISH VOLUNTEERS

In order to assure quality pastoral care for our children, teens, and vulnerable adults, St. Margaret Parish requires all parish volunteers, who are 18 and older, to comply with the most current child protection training that is offered by the Archdiocese of Baltimore.  The Archdiocese now uses a compliance management system called VIRTUS, to facilitate compliance with archdiocesan child protection requirements for all volunteers, employees, and clergy. 

Please note that ALL volunteers at St. Margaret Parish are considered “substantial contact volunteers” and must complete the full screening process/training, which includes a background check.  You can access the system at: https://www.virtusonline.org.  

If you are interested in volunteering and have not completed Virtus, or if you have questions about the Virtus process, please contact the screening coordinator, Betty Mooney, at 410-838-6969 or by email at betty.mooney@stmargaret.org.  

For those younger volunteers who are between the ages of 14-17, you must complete a training called Worthy of the Call. This training is done on site and lasts until you turn 18. If you are interested in volunteering and have not completed training, please contact Kristin Rupprecht at 410-838-6969 or by email at krupprecht@stmargaret.org.
