The Shrine’s history started with volunteers: during the prodigy of the ice bridge, several volunteers carried tirelessly stones for many days and nights.

Every day, many volunteers give generously of their time and thus contribute to the Shrine’s mission. Volunteering at the Shrine means serving with other enthusiastic and lovers of the Our Lady of the Cape Shrine, welcoming pilgrims from all over the world, following training times and much more!
