Volunteer - Seton Shrine


Volunteer at the Seton Shrine

Join the Seton Shrine community in a special way by volunteering! There are a number of ways to become involved, including liturgical ministries at Mass, hospitality in the museum and Basilica, helping hands for retreats, and much more. Volunteers can choose any schedule that works for them, whether that’s monthly, weekly, or just once in a while. The Shrine is truly grateful for the wonderful community of volunteers here, as each play such an invaluable role in continuing the mission of promoting Mother Seton’s life and legacy. We would love to have you join the Shrine volunteer family too!
