Volunteering at St. Anthony Shrine

St. Anthony Shrine depends on dedicated volunteers to help carry out the mission of the Shrine to provide a welcoming place of love for all God’s people. There are 20+ programs and ministries at the Shrine that serve the needs of our worshipers and surrounding communities. We strive to make the volunteer environment and community at St. Anthony Shrine a vibrant and fulfilling opportunity for each of our volunteers.

All applications are on a first-come first-service basis and all applicants must be at least 18 years of age. We will keep a waitlist for those who are eligible but beyond our current capacity needs.
