Sascha Blanchard said, “We are absolutely delighted to receive this cheque, all our nurses, carers and doctors volunteer their time so this will go directly to the pilgrims”.

Each year, Salisbury Catenians raise money for good causes, both local and around the world.

Salisbury Catenians

The Catenian Association is an international network of Catholic men who are committed to their Christian faith, their families and to helping those in need since the early Twentieth Century.

Society of Our Lady of Lourdes

The Society’s 2020 pilgrimage was virtual, of course. The objective of the Society is to enable and encourage pilgrims, mainly from England, to visit Lourdes, minimising barriers of cost and disability.


Lourdes is a small town in southern France and was a quiet place until, the in the mid-Nineteenth Century, Mary the Mother of God appeared to Bernadette Soubirous. It quickly became one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the world. Before the advent of COVID-19, about five million pilgrims visit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes each year
