The Hednesford Pilgrimage runs annually in response to Our Lady’s invitation to come in procession.

Every year since 1969 (bar the Covid years), pilgrims have come to the shrine to honour Our Lady of Lourdes. The pilgrimage offers a special insight into the care and community that pilgrims share with one another and is a great opportunity to meet old friends.

Pilgrims are asked to please bring your own chairs.
