19th – 26th August 2022 – Lourdes Pilgrimage

After two ‘grace years’ dictated by the pandemic, we are returning to Lourdes this year. You are warmly invited to join us. However, despite our initial hopes, we have concluded that one of the lingering effects of the pandemic is that we will be unable to provide medical or nursing support for adults on this year’s CA pilgrimage.  We will not be using the Accueil this year and, regrettably, we will not be able to support adult pilgrims with personal care needs. However, we will have access to wheelchairs and we will have volunteer helpers who will be able to push those wheelchairs while in Lourdes. Therefore, we hope that those who require assistance from us for their mobility issues but can independently meet their medical and personal care needs will still be able to join us. More details and booking forms will be available by the end of March. Please contact the Association Office if you have any queries.
