Parental involvement is an integral part of the ESCS experience. Last year, over 300 volunteers donated nearly 12,000 hours of their time at Espiritu Santo Catholic School. All families are required to complete a minimum number of volunteer hours each school year; please refer to the current Handbook for specific requirements.

How can I volunteer at Espiritu:

Become a Diocesan-Approved Volunteer

For the safety of our children, all volunteers operating in the Diocese of St. Petersburg are required to complete a Safe Environment Program (SEP) Training Course online and submit their fingerprints for a Level II Background Check.


  1. Complete Volunteer Application and return to school office: ESCS Volunteer Application
  2. Schedule training and fingerprinting : SEP-Level II Instructions 2017 (fee is the responsibility of the volunteer)


More information can be found on the DOSP Safe Environment website.

Still have questions: Contact Mary Mansour, Registrar.

Report for Volunteer Duty

If you are coming to volunteer at ESCS during the school day, you will be asked to log in to the security system as a “Volunteer.” Please know that this is for SECURITY PURPOSES ONLY, and this system does NOT track the time you spend volunteering (one of the more popular ESCS “urban legends”). Instead, volunteer hours should be recorded on Sign Up Genius.

Espiritu Santo volunteers are the best, thank you for your time.
