Last summer they had an exhilarating Diocesan Youth Pilgrimage to Lourdes with a group of young people from Fareham, Reading and other parts of the Diocese together with nearly 20 FOCUS youth from the United States. They did all the usual pilgrimage exercises including Mass at the Grotto, the Torchlight Procession, the Blessed Sacrament Procession, the International Mass, going into the Baths, a trip out to Gavarnie etc.
They are now planning for next year and they hope to have the FOCUS members plus about 30 of our youth, and together they will be leading the Pilgrimage. They will all stay together in the same hotel and share the same programme. The youth will invite the sick, the elderly, families and individuals to join them as pilgrims. It will be a five or six day pilgrimage in the week after the end of school term. So do save the dates: 25th – 30th July 2019.
More details coming soon.
