Everyone is struggling with the impact of the Coronavirus lockdown. This is a crisis that will affect many lives for many months to come.
Here at the Shrine, Mass carries on and we are pleased to have our doors open to the public once again.
However, unlike many parishes, we have no investments, no properties from which we can collect rent and little cash in the bank. The Shrine is funded almost entirely on what people put in the collection each week. Covent Garden has a very small resident population, and so most of our collection comes from tourists staying in nearby hotels, or coming to the West End to see a show. With tourism limited and theatres still shut, we will feel the pinch of lockdown long after many of the restrictions are lifted.
