Parish Pilgrimage to Lourdes

Mon 28th May - Fri 1st June 2007.

Each year, my parish runs a Pilgrimage to Lourdes during the summer half-term holiday. Mac does all the practical organisation, booking flights, hotel etc. Because we do it ourselves, we are able to keep the cost low. This year, I think we will have to have Mass at Blackfen before we go on the Monday, because we will get there just before supper and will want to leave people able to take part in the torchlight procession in the evening. We take part in the international Mass on the Wednesday, the English Mass at the Grotto on whichever day we are allocated and book chapels for the other two days. We stay at the Hotel D'Angleterre which is very near the Domaine. Anyone who wants to join us is welcome.

Half-board 3-star accommodation within easy reach of the Domaine, coach transfers and flights (Gatwick-Toulouse) £320 per adult (sharing), £160 per child under 16. Single supplement extra.

If you want to come, get in touch with Mac who is organising it. She has put up a post talking about Pilgrimage Planning. from

Last date for booking is 14 Feb 2007. Bookings after this date may incur a supplement - we pass on any extra cost we incur.
