If you haven't visited The Grotto lately, or if you've never been, you're missing out on a spectacular sanctuary that was voted in the Top Ten Destinations in Oregon by Trip Advisor.

With over 62 acres of peaceful gardens, a Gift Shop and the magnificent Chapel of Mary, The Grotto is a beloved sanctuary and an oasis of peace in the middle of Portland, only 10 minutes from downtown.

Volunteers serve in a variety of ways, primarily greeting our visitors, upkeep of the grounds, leading tours of the gardens and special events. If you like interaction with the public in a tranquil setting, we offer four-hour shifts weekdays or weekends, whichever you prefer.

Our volunteers are cherished, and you will receive training, support, and recognition of your service. We also thank our volunteers with an annual Garden Pass after 40 hours of service!

Please contact Agnes Zueger via email, to find out more about The Grotto's Volunteer program.
