The annual Cork and Ross Pilgrimage to Lourdes took place from the 11th to the 16th June. The pilgrimage was led by Bishop Buckley and Canon James O’Donovan. Upwards of 500 Pilgrims travelled with 115 sick and infirm who were accommodated in the hospital there.
60 Young Adult Helpers travelled and were involved in caring and assisting the sick and infirm. This group came from parishes from across the diocese, from U.C.C. and from Col?iste an Spioraid Naomh. These were first time helpers and they also joined with the choir and took part in the liturgies.
