Annual Pilgrimage to Lourdes 2016

Lourdes grotto
The Dublin Diocese takes two pilgrimages to Lourdes each year. The pilgrimage in September is one of the biggest events in the Diocese calendar and is lead by the
Archbishop. About 2,000 pilgrims travel from all over the Diocese. Of these, 180 are sick pilgrims staying at the Accueil Notre Dame which is ‘a place of welcome’ close to the Grotto and with many of the facilities of a modern hospital. Another 550 of the pilgrims are voluntary helpers, made up of nurses and doctors, male and female helpers, known as handmaids and brancardiers, and a team of chaplains. A further 200 young people assist as well in the care of the sick pilgrims and many of these are from secondary schools and colleges from around the Diocese. The balance of the pilgrimage is made up of Parish Groups and individuals from every corner of the Diocese.

This September from the 6th to the 12th, the Church of the Most Precious Blood and  Clontarf will be making their annuual Pilgrimage  to Lourdes, Lead by Fr. Michael O' Grady.
