5-night / 6-day pilgrimage including return flights from Heathrow with British Airways, private group transfers, 5-nights full board in the 4* Grand Hotel Moderne, full religious itinerary & escorted by an Anam Cara Travel guide.
Monsignor Kevin Hale (PP of Leigh-on-Sea) & Rev. Fr. Graham Smith (PP of Southend & Prittlewell), extend a warm welcome to all pilgrims wishing to join their parishes on pilgrimage to the Marian Shrine of Lourdes. Whilst in Lourdes, the Parishes will follow the Brentwood Diocesan Pilgrimage led by Bishop Alan Williams.
The Sanctuary of Lourdes is suggesting as its 2022 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.” Taking into account the content and the richness of these words and so as to make them more easily digestible for the pilgrims, they will be presented in three stages:
IN 2022 :
“Go and tell the priests …”
IN 2023 :
“… to build here a chapel here…”
IN 2024 :
“… and that people should come in procession.”
Indeed, when it comes to understanding the person of the Virgin Mary, we are all invited to turn to the teaching of the Church. However, when it comes to loving the Mother of God, we must turn to the experience of the holy and faithful People of God: the pilgrims themselves, and among them, par excellence, Bernadette Soubirous.
