Financial Support

I've really enjoyed the mixture of the modern worship music, but also between the traditional liturgy, the importance of the Mass. The thing I will remember the most, was the healing ministries yesterday. They were just really powerful and you could just feel the holy spirit moving. Grace, Belfast

How we can help

With the cost of living being so high at the moment and the increase in the cost of travel, this can be a barrier for some young people and groups.

We have two types of grants to help both individual young people and also your group as a whole.

  1. We are incredibly grateful to The Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament who are providing financial support for individual Young Pilgrims. If you have Young Pilgrims in your parish who are unable to attend due to financial constraints, you can apply directly on the CBS website (link below) Applications need to be made on an individual basis. Closing date for applications is Tuesday 7th May 2024.
  2. The Shrine is able to provide grants to help with transport costs for your whole  group (see link below). Closing date for applications for travel support is Friday 21st June 2024.

If you have any questions do get in touch with Caroline Ward, Director of Education at the Shrine on
