Since we first set out on the journey to secure Ampleforth’s long-term future, we have received much generous support from our family and friends. The road goes on, however, and we have some distance still to travel. We hope you will spare a few moments to read about our projects and consider walking with us a little way.
The monks of Ampleforth are engaged in a wide range of works inspired by the Rule of St Benedict, responding to the spiritual needs of the world today. At the heart of their apostolate is the desire to enable all those who seek it to have an “Encounter with God”. This could be by joining us for the Office or Mass, in person or online, participating in one of our many retreats or engaging further with your faith through exploring a vocation to monastic life.
Your support, through the Ampleforth Annual Fund, will enable the Monastic Community to extend their welcome, support the daily and prayer life of the community and welcome all those who “come and see” to have a meaningful experience here at Ampleforth.
Your support for our Bursary Fund will help us to ensure no one is denied an Ampleforth College education, whatever their background or means. It will enable us to attract the most promising students to Ampleforth, enriching the educational experience for all of our student body. We hope eventually to fund a significant proportion of our students through bursaries. Contributions to the Bursary Fund will enable us to widen our welcome to students who might not otherwise have the chance to share in Ampleforth College’s Benedictine Values and educational opportunities.
Every year, Ampleforth takes over 400 people to Lourdes on Pilgrimage. This includes many sick, vulnerable and elderly pilgrims who are supported by volunteer Doctors, Nurses, Helpers and Clergy. Many of those who travel with us are unable to afford a trip to Lourdes, particularly those that we provide care and assistance to.
Your help for FOALS will mean that we can try to enable all those who wish to answer the call of Our Lady to come on Pilgrimage to join us, particularly those who need this the most.
Friends of Ampleforth have been incredibly generous in supporting various projects over the years and we hope this support will continue. If you wish to make a contribution to any of our current appeals, please select a payment option below.
