Pilgrimages to Lourdes and Lisieux

I have heard that the usual Diocesan pilgrimages will be restarting this year, after the lockdowns. There are certainly diary dates, but everybody is treading gingerly, because of possible future cancellations. We are now used after a long two years to frustrations and disappointments. We’ve just had a message from Father John McCay, who is resuming his coach trips to and from Lourdes and Lisieux. Here are the details he has sent; do get in touch if you’re interested:


Pilgrimage to Lourdes and Nevers by Coach, June 4th – 11th, 2022
(Pick up in Nottingham, Derby and Leicester)

The cost is £670 per person. This price includes Coach and Ferry travel, overnight stay with Bed and Breakfast at the Welcome Break hotel in Orleans on the way out, full board at the Hotel Irlande in Lourdes, half board at the Kyriad Hotel in Nevers on the way back. In addition to this there’s an optional excursion to Gavarnie, a Ski Resort in the Pyrenees.

Parish Pilgrimage to Lisieux by Coach, April 23rd – 26th, 2022
( Pick up in Nottingham, Derby and Leicester)

The cost of the Pilgrimage is £330 sharing and £360 for a single room. We will begin our Pilgrimage with a Guided visit to the Cathedral in Lisieux and then to the Basilica dedicated to St. Therese, to the house where she grew up and to the Carmel where she lived and died. In addition to this there’ll be an optional excursion to Hon Fleur.
