Virtual Pilgrimage to Lourdes

20 – 27 August 2021

This year due to the restrictions in place caused by the pandemic, we are inviting you to join us as virtual pilgrims.

Throughout the week 21st-27th August 2021, a virtual programme will be in place so that you can still journey in the footsteps of St Bernadette into deeper relationship with Jesus through His Mother, Mary.

Amongst other events, we shall be joining the Lourdes Chaplains in the Grotto, as they pray the Rosary in English on Tuesday 24th August 2021 at 2.00 pm. There will be a special candle lit for the Clifton Diocese and the pilgrims at this time. If anyone would like their intentions to be prayed for during this Rosary, please send your petitions and I will pass them to the Grotto for inclusion on the altar.

Please send any prayer requests to [email protected]

Fr Nick King SJ starts off our pilgrimage with a welcome to Clifton Diocese. He explores the theme of this year’s pilgrimage and asks us to follow the pilgrimage on this website throughout the week.
