At the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN), Volunteers are the heart and soul of the program.  Without volunteers we could not provide services to our guest families.  Volunteers perform simple but immeasurably significant services.  They supply the meals, the time needed to host at our church and they donate money to purchase the supplies for the host week as well. 

The next host week at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish will begin April 23, 2023 and end April 30, 2023. 


Consider to be a volunteer!
