Bishop's Pro-Life Dinner
Youth Volunteers

Return to Bishop's Pro-Life Dinner Home Page.


Every year we need an army of 200+ youth and safe environment-cleared adult volunteers to make the Bishop's Pro-Life Dinner a success.

The Bishop's Pro-Life Dinner is an excellent opportunity for youth to earn service hours, meet youth from across the Diocese of Dallas, and gain a greater respect for the dignity of life.

Interested?  Here's how to be part of this special event:

Middle, High school and college-age students are neededBD_Youth_3.jpg in the following areas before, during, and after the dinner:

  • hospitality
  • ushering
  • registration, and
  • clean-up.

All groups must be Safe-Environment compliant:

To meet Safe Environment standards, you must provide at least two chaperones age 21+ to supervise your group. Adults age 18-20 do not count as chaperones. In the morning, there should be at least two chaperones for every ten youth, and in the evening, two chaperones at each table. Youth must bring a YFL General Release Form (español) and signed Code of Conduct (español). Please ask the parish or school where your chaperones are cleared to provide written verification of the latest date for the Criminal Background Check (CBC) and latest date for Safe Environment training indicating their status. This information must be provided for each person 18 or older in your group assisting with the set-up or attending the Bishop’s Dinner. If all of your adults are from the same parish or school you may use the Safe Environment Verification Form. Also, please complete the CPLC Volunteer Form at prolifedallas.org/volunteerform for each adult 18 or older. You may fax or scan adult forms to CPLC Safety Patricia Vasquez at 972-385-3851 or e-mail to .
