The Lourdes theme for 2014 is “The Joy of Conversion”.
2013 was “The Year of Faith” and yes we really needed faith to survive the dreadful flood that did so much damage to Our Lady’s shrine in Lourdes. We had to rearrange some 2000 pilgrimages as a result. Thankfully we sourced alternative accommodation for all those affected so nobody missed out on going to Lourdes. For 2014 we are glad to say that the majority of hotels we use in Lourdes have been extensively renovated.
A pilgrimage to the Holy Land you will have the opportunity to bring to life the stories that we have all read or heard in our local parishes. The story of the Nativity, Cana and Mount Olives are just a few places we will visit.
We have a group going from Newcastle to Fatimafrom 11th - 15th September, travelling from Newcastle to Lisbon via London. The price is £621 per person. This includes the flight from Newcastle to London and return. The pilgrimage will be led by a Fr David Smith.
