87th Salford Lourdes pilgrimage beginsThursday 25th July 2019
Today, volunteers and pilgrims from the Salford Lourdes trip have embarked on the Diocese’s 87th pilgrimage.
While in Lourdes, the group will complete a walking tour of Lourdes, enjoy social time together and experience Mass in the Grotto which you are able to watch live on the Lourdes live stream at 07:30 (GMT) on Sunday 28 July.
Bishop John will be celebrating the Mass, in which the Salford Lourdes team will be joined by pilgrims from the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle.
You can also follow the pilgrimage online by visiting the Salford Lourdes website and Twitter account, and we will also be sharing highlights from the pilgrimage on the Salford Diocese Twitter account.
Bishop John said: “I would like to offer my thanks to all the organisers and volunteers who, year on year, help to make the Lourdes pilgrimage a prayerful experience that gives priority to the sick pilgrims in all that we do.”
Please join us in praying for a successful and blessed pilgrimage for everyone involved.
