Summer Lourdes Pilgrimage to go ahead

Lourdes Basilica

The Diocesan Lourdes Pilgrimage is to go ahead this year, for the first time in three years. Led by Bishop Alan, it will run from 24 to 29 July. The Brentwood Catholic Youth Service will once again be supporting the pilgrims and will travel on 23 July and return on 30 July.

Young people across the Diocese are warmly invited to take part in the youth pilgrimage to Lourdes, to assist pilgrims to Masses, services, shops and cafes of the beautiful French town, take part in retreats and a youth-led reconciliation service, visit the baths and the stunning mountain town of Gavarnie, experience the amazing Lourdes processions, as well as social nights, party and so much more!

The cost is £625 for the week, and is open to all those in school year 11 and above. (Funding and grant opportunities are available)
