Thank you so much to everyone who has participated in our Archdiocesan Virtual Lourdes Pilgrimage between 10th and 17th July 2020. The organising team have been completely overwhelmed by your engagement and humbled by such kind comments and positive feedback during our week on pilgrimage.
Many people have contacted us to ask about how they can make a donation following on from the Pilgrimage and therefore we have set up this page to allow you to donate easily with Gift Aid if appropriate.
As you are aware, the work of the Lourdes Pilgrimage is ongoing throughout the year and we use funds to promote the message of Our Lady of Lourdes and to assist pilgrims – both sick and helpers – to travel to Lourdes. This year we have also been approached for donations by the Accueil Saint Frai, also known as ‘the hospital’, where our sick pilgrims stay while we are in Lourdes. Given the cancellation of almost all pilgrimages due to COVID-19, they have severe cash flow problems and without our support they may not be able to remain open moving forwards.
If you would like to donate, all will be gratefully received and will either form part of our Archdiocesan donation to Accueil Saint Frai or towards helping others to travel to Lourdes in the future. We are very grateful to everyone for your ongoing support.
With best wishes,
The Pilgrimage & Hospitalitè Committees.
