Join the dedicated volunteers of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe who help to make this a spiritual home for all pilgrims and visitors who visit us from across the Archdiocese of Chicago, the country, and beyond.
This is an exciting time to get involved! In March 2017 we launched the campaign for the building of the Chapel of St. Joseph, which is estimated to be completed in spring 2018. We are also welcoming high numbers of visitors to the Shrine, especially on the weekends and for special events.
*Please note: Volunteers under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
