Volunteer Roles at the Shrine

"The Church and society expect great things from us...and immense will be the good work we all do." - St. Frances Cabrini, 'Letter to Students'

 

Looking to share your gifts of time and talent?

Volunteers are vital to the ongoing life at the Shrine. There are several ways to get involved in the mission and ministry of the Shrine. We look forward to hearing from you!

 

Liturgical Ministries

Masses at the Shrine: Saturday at 4:00 p.m. and Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

Volunteers are needed for each Mass in the roles of:

  • Lector
  • Eucharistic Minister
  • Usher

During each Mass, there are 2 Lectors, 3 Eucharistic Ministers and 2 Ushers. Volunteers indicate their availability and are placed on the schedule accordingly.

 

Docents

Individuals interested in a docent role will receive a docent packet and instructions. Once trained, individuals will be able to give tours based upon their availability.

Special Events/Programs

We will add your email address to our volunteer list. In the event the Shrine holds a special event or is in need of assistance with a special program, we will email out a notice describing the need and ask for volunteers. This role is a great way to stay engaged with the Shrine and offers an opportunity to participate as you are available.

 

Reception

Volunteer to sit at the reception desk, answer the phone, greet our visitors and provide general office assistance. This role is essential as you will act as hospitality for visitors first entering the Shrine and you will be the face of the Shrine!
