Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are an essential part of the mission at Our Lady of Peace. They support our staff and help enrich the experience of our patients. For those who want to help, many opportunities are available to suit most schedules and interests.

We have several entities within the Our Lady of Peace organization, and each has different volunteer roles available.

Please note: If you have lost a loved one recently, we ask that you wait one year to volunteer with the exception of special event volunteering.
