In his message for the 27th World Day of the Sick, which is celebrated today, Pope Francis reminds us all of the importance of volunteers and the “culture of generosity” in caring for the sick. Our diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes is evidence of that generosity throughout the diocese. We give thanks to those who give so much of their time each year to ensure that the pilgrimage is a success.
What better way to celebrate today’s Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and to mark World Day of the Sick than by booking your place on this years pilgrimage!
