The very existence of the Shrine depends on the dedication, support and donations of the thousands of pilgrims who come to Walsingham every year. Both in medieval times and in the past 95 years since the restoration, it is the devotion and determination of those people whose spiritual lives have been enriched through contact with Our Lady that has enabled the Shrine to continue and expand its ministry. As pilgrimage grew in the 1920’s Fr Patten, the restorer of the Shrine, was able to call on the support – financial and practical assistance - from both friends and strangers.

Donate

As a charity, the Shrine depends on this giving in order to subsidise the costs for pilgrims staying at Walsingham and none of the large building and refurbishment undertakings of the past few years would be possible without the sacrificial giving from those with a deep love of Our Lady of Walsingham.

The Shrine Shop

The Shrine Shop is an integral part of the Shrine, focusing on the needs of pilgrims. Situated in the very heart of the village of Little Walsingham in The Common Place, the Shrine Shop has long been an integral part of the Walsingham experience.

Gifts & Legacies

Many pilgrims make donations, large and small; good friends offer financial support through significant gifts perhaps in celebration of an event in their life for which thanks are called for or in memory of a relative or friend. Others remember the Shrine in their wills.

Volunteers

Others offer their time. During the summer we offer board and lodging to those who volunteer to work in a variety of capacities. Our team of Welcome Centre Stewards live across north Norfolk and provide an invaluable service for pilgrims and visitors alike.
