2024 Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes

Have you thought about going on pilgrimage to Lourdes in this Year of Prayer of preparation for the Jubilee Year 2025?  All are welcome! 

Part of the reason for a diocesan pilgrimage is to enable Assisted Pilgrims to travel with doctors, nurses, volunteer helpers and youth supporting them as an act of service.  A diocesan pilgrimage, however, also exists to enable the diocese to join together as Church, in prayer, with the Bishop, on pilgrimage. 

As well as joining in the larger international celebrations in the shrine such as the Eucharistic Procession, Torchlight Procession and International Mass, we join together as a diocese for Mass each day, for Holy Hour, and for the Sacraments of Anointing and Reconciliation.  Healing and Reconciliation are a particular focus for any pilgrimage to Lourdes.   Parishioners from around the diocese are warmly invited to join us for this pilgrimage experience. 

The pilgrimage dates are Friday 28 June to Thursday 4 July 2024, flying from Leeds Bradford Airport direct to Lourdes, with 6 nights’ full board in good quality hotels. The fare is £879 based on two people sharing.  Around 330 pilgrims will travel including a large group of young people from every high school in the diocese.

Places are still available, and organisers would be very grateful if those who intend to travel could send their booking forms in as soon as possible so that plans can be made.  Any details still to be obtained (e.g. new passport, or new GHIC card) can follow later on. 

For further details, booking forms, and videos from previous pilgrimages, see our website www.hallam-lourdes.com or telephone 01302 247910 or 07724 650066 with your enquiry.  Alex Prior Pilgrimage Director
