Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.1 Peter 4:10
oin the dedicated volunteers of the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa who help to make this a spiritual home for all pilgrims and visitors who visit us from across the country, and beyond.
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 have many areas that need spirit filled volunteers to help our pilgrims feel the love and mercy of our Lord. While the majority of the pilgrims speak English, we do have some who speak other languages such as Polish or French and Spanish. If you speak any of these or any other foreign language, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Our weekends are the busiest and during weekends we need the most help. Some of the areas where we need assistance include, food- serving, crowd control, gift shop, maintenance, clean up and help with the handicapped. Information hosts, and parking lot attendents are also needed.
If you are interested to be invloved in Shrine volunteering. One of our staff members will be happy to meet with you to help you discover the best place to use your gifts to support the mission of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa.
May God bless you for your continued support and dedication to Our Lady’s Shrine. May Our Lady of Czestochowa guide and protect you always.
We look forward to Hearing from YOU!
