Voluntary Service

From time to time ICCRS seeks the help of those who are willing to serve at its office with their God-given talents and time, furthering their mission in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal within the Vatican City, at the very heart of the Church. There are two options for volunteers to serve at ICCRS:

  • Long Term Service: one year or longer.
  • Short Term Service: two, three or more months, and up to one year.


Experience and Skills


ICCRS seeks well-organized and responsible people who are familiar or capable and willing to learn, in the areas of secretariat, technical service (server and network), graphic design and web mastering, or bookkeeping and administration. As the ICCRS office has an international target of service, it is important that the volunteer helpers speak English in addition to being fluent in another language, possibly Spanish, French, or Italian. Working conditions are in an ecclesial environment, in which people are called to use their gifts and charisms to build each other up. For this reason, it is essential for the staff to have a prayer and sacramental life, and be willing to join a community or prayer group in Rome. Volunteers come to serve Jesus, by serving ICCRS and Charismatic Renewal, and growing in communion and unity with other volunteers… as a Christian family.
