Make Lourdes possible!

A lot of people would love the opportunity to visit Lourdes, France — a place of pilgrimage, peace and healing since Our Lady appeared there to Bernadette in 1858. And many people go there every year.

However, the sick and less able people can only get there with the assistance of carers and helpers. Thousands of people from across the world give of their time in Lourdes each year as volunteer helpers.

This video is about the Cork and Ross annual pilgrimage and the opportunity for young people (18–25) to help on the pilgrimage as part of an organised group and to make this a time of grace for themselves and for others.

Anyone seeking information about the Young Helpers part of the pilgrimage, contact Fr Charlie Kiely at 021-4537474. Email
