We would like to thank allour pilgrims and visitors for their understanding and support at this time. We continue to monitor the guidance issued at national and local level with respect to coronavirus and you are encouraged to refer back to this website for updates.
The Shrine is now open in line with current government guidelines. The recommendations for social distancing mean that there is still a limit on the numbers of cars in the carpark, the numbers of visitors on the site and in the buildings, and on seating for Mass inside the Chapel of Reconciliation. When the site is at capacity, entrance to the Shrine carpark and grounds may be restricted. On arrival, please follow the instructions of the Shrine Stewards. Thank you for your understanding and patience!
As the recommendations for social distancing still limit the numbers of people who can visit the Shrine, we invite you to follow our programme and make prayer and Mass requests – online. You can also donate through www.walsingham.org.uk/support-shrine.
We ask especially that you consider making a regular gift to assist the Shrine in this challenging time. If you prefer to send a cheque, please follow the same link and select “cheque” as a payment option. Thank you.
