The pilgrimage always includes the key Lourdes experiences.

There include Torchlight and Blessed Sacrament processions, International Mass, walking in the footsteps of St Bernadette, visit the Grotto, stations of the cross and responding to Our Lady’s call to bathe in the spring waters.

Furthermore, we take a trip into the mountains, taking in the Hautes-Pyrenees culture and for the brave, a mountain hike!

Young people are especially invited to participate in the great tradition of service in Lourdes.

People of all ages travel to Lourdes to seek healing in the spring waters and spiritual renewal, and wouldn’t be able to participate in the pilgrimage if it wasn’t for teams of volunteers pushing wheelchairs, assisting them around town.


All sessions are accessible to everyone and are facilitated by Bishop Philip and young people from the diocese.

The pilgrimage is a special place to deepen your understanding of the principles of our faith, and a listen to inspirational testimony of the amazing things that God is doing in people’s lives through His Church.
