Each year, around 500 young people make the annual trip to Lourdes with the Archdiocese Youth Pilgrimage. The pilgrimage has been running for over 35 years and 9 coaches from across the Archdiocese take part; North Liverpool, Knowsley, St Helens, Leigh & Wigan, Penwortham, Warrington & Widnes, Sefton, South Liverpool & Isle of Man and Leyland.
While in Lourdes, the youth take part in an array of things. We pray together, work together, eat together, sing together, laugh together and come away with some of the best friendships and memories that we will treasure for life.
Lourdes 2020 forms will be available to download from Tuesday 1st October at 9am.
Deposit of £50 to be sent with application.
Below is a statement from the executive and organisers of the Liverpool Lourdes Pilgrimage.
It is with great sorrow and regret that we have to announce that the Liverpool Archdiocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes in July 2020 has been postponed.
The Pilgrimage has been postponed to 22nd July 2021.
The Archbishop and the trustees of the Archdiocese have made this very difficult decision both to safeguard and protect all those pilgrims that would be going to Lourdes this summer, and also to offer some clarity in this time of great uncertainty.
Youth Pilgrimage Pilgrims and St Bernadette Team will receive more information about how this affects them later this afternoon (Friday 3rd April). Please check your emails.
