A diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes is held annually

This year's pilgrimage will take place from Friday 20th to Wednesday 25th September

Parish groups, individuals and anyone with a desire to be part of this faith journey is welcome to partake.

Bishop Fintan thanks all those who volunteered last year and invites friends, family and fellow parishioners to this year's pilgrimage

People who need assistance are accommodated in a special hospital on the grounds of the shrine and this is staffed during the pilgrimage by people from Cork & Ross who volunteer to assist the pilgrims. The helpers and the able-bodied pilgrims stay in the hotels in the town - which are also near the Grotto.
