Why Donate?

As the United States' patron church and preeminent Marian Shrine, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is a place of prayer and pilgrimage. Our mission here at Mary's Shrine is to proclaim the great story of faith, which continues to unfold in our time. As you may know, the National Shrine has no home parish. We depend solely on the generous offerings of Catholics like you to continue as a sanctuary of pilgrimage and prayer for hundreds of thousands of our brothers and sisters in Christ. So please, if you can, consider making an offering to the National Shrine. Your voluntary gifts enable us to continue our ministry.

Thank you.
