Families-In-Service (FIS)


The Families-in-Service (FIS) Program was established in a continuing effort to:

  1. Support the financial needs of The Basilica School of Saint Mary.
  2. Provide services and educational enrichment programs to our children and school staff.
  3. Ensure responsibilities are uniformly distributed and shared among school families.
  4. Offer families opportunities to interact with other children’s parents, school staff, and friends.

Contributions to THE BASILICA OF SAINT MARY CANNOT be used to satisfy the monetary or hourly FIS requirements. No other donation of goods, services, or business promotions will be recognized in place of FIS monetary or hourly requirements.

Note: The Basilica of Saint Mary enforces the Arlington Diocesan requirement that all volunteers who have contact with children must complete the entire The Child Protection Program which includes a background check, and attending a VIRTUS training session.

FIS positions designated as having contact with children are clearly marked with an asterisk (*) in the catalog. Please direct any questions regarding the Diocesan requirements to Carmen Federle, The Basilica of Saint Mary Child Protection & Safety Liaison, at cfederele@stmaryoldtown.org
