Volunteer Roles at the National Shrine of
Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini

If you are interested in any of the following volunteer roles, please contact the Shrine at 773-360-5115. We look forward to hearing from you!

Liturgical Ministries

Masses at the Shrine: Saturdays, 4:00 p.m., Sundays 10:00 a.m.
Volunteers are needed for the roles of Lector, Eucharistic Minister or Usher. During each Mass, we have 2 lectors, 3 Eucharistic Ministers and 2 Ushers. Volunteers indicate their availability and are placed into the schedule.


Individuals interested in the docent role will receive a docent packet and instruction. Once trained, individuals will be able to give tours, as they are available. .

Special Events/Programs

Add your email address to our volunteer list. Each time the Shrine holds a special event or is in need of assistance with a 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 one is available.


Volunteers will be asked to sit at the reception desk, answer the phone, greet our visitors and provide general assistance as directed by Shrine staff.
