How do we Support Ourselves?

Westminster Cathedral receives no funding from the Vatican, the Diocese or the Government and, particularly as we do not charge for admission, we depend entirely on the generosity of those who love this place

It costs over £5000 a day to run the Cathedral and keep it in good condition. Yet the hard truth is: we do not receive enough money to meet our basic expenses. For this reason we need the help of everyone who wants to see Westminster Cathedral continue its mission and service to all.


If you would like to support the Cathedral you really can help.
