We are pleased to announce booking is now open for this year's Diocesan Lourdes Pilgrimage.

It runs from Monday 27 May to Saturday 1 June under the leadership of His Grace, Archbishop Bernard Longley and Bishop David Evans.

You can now book your preferred method of travel - flight or coach - and choose where to stay from a number of hotels. You can choose to join as an Official Diocesan Pilgrim or Affiliate Pilgrim.

The theme for 2024 is – “…and that people should come in procession.”

The Sanctuary of Lourdes is suggesting as a pastoral theme the words that Mary, the Mother of God, entrusted to Bernadette Soubirous on 2nd March 1858: “Go tell the priests to build a chapel here and that people should come in procession.”

2022 theme – “Go and tell the priests…”

2023 theme – “…to build a chapel here…”

2024 theme – “…and that people should come in procession.”
