Help Us Build our Team

Are God and Our Lady Calling You?

We are actively forming our team this Fall to be ready to train and open in 2023!

Mater Filius is a true ministry — a volunteer-based nonprofit that will rely on God to call members of the community to support this work.

We will need Volunteers in roles of:

  • Directors
  • Mentors
  • Internal volunteers for direct help with moms, kids, admin & more
  • External volunteers to help find resources and spread the word

Download our list of specific needs here and discern God’s call for you!

If you’ve already expressed interest in volunteering, please stay tuned for more volunteer discussions this fall, and please consider attending our bi-monthly volunteer Rosary Group to start forming as a team!

Although we will primarily operate as a volunteer-based ministry, we will have paid positions of employment for certain key roles, specifically our Daytime Ima (Housemother) and part-time staff in the Child Enrichment program. Contact Executive Director Lisa Schmitz ( or 719-900-2801) to learn more about these positions, or check back for a listing of employment opportunities when we are ready to start hiring in early 2023.

Have other talent that you would like to share with Mater Filius as a volunteer? Please contact us!

Please prayerfully consider how God may be calling you to Defend Life with Love.
