Since the restoration of the Shrine over 80 years ago, thousands of pilgrims have contributed to the running, upkeep and development of ‘England’s Nazareth’ through their donations, gifts and legacies.  As a national centre of pilgrimage and a registered charity, our income is wholly reliant on the income we receive from our pilgrims and visitors and the money raised through offerings and appeals. These donations make a real difference to the life of the Shrine and the pastoral care we are able to deliver.

The Shrine's regular income has taken something of a hit during the Covid-19 crisis as we have been unable to welcome the large numbers of pilgrims who usually come to Walsingham on residential pilgrimages. If you are someone who usually makes a donation when visiting the Shrine, and are not in financially difficult circumstances at present, we wonder if you might consider making a one-off or regular donation?


What happens to the money that is placed in the various offering boxes in the Shrine Church? All these offerings (generally anonymous, unless Gift Aided - if you visit and are a UK taxpayer do take the trouble to fill in a Gift Aid envelope; your donation is then worth considerably more) are put towards the regular upkeep of the Shrine – and the Church in particular.


The Shrine is currently raising money to restore the Barn Chapel. Due to severe damp problems this place of stillness and peace is sadly no longer fit for purpose.

Can you help support a young person attend the 2024 Youth Pilgrimage by becoming their 'Godparent' for the week? We would like young people to have the opportunity to come regardless of their financial circumstances. Your financial help is important, but above all it creates a bond of fellowship, prayer and love with the young people.
