Office of the Dublin Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes

Two pilgrimages travel to Lourdes each year from the Archdiocese: The pilgrimage from 7th – 12th 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 500 of the pilgrims are voluntary helpers, made up of nurses and doctors, female and male 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.

The Children’s Pilgrimage is a much smaller group, but a very important one, as it joins with thousands of other child pilgrims from all over the world each year from the Monday to the Saturday of Easter Week. About forty children travel from Dublin assisted by the same number of helpers and a team of chaplains, doctors and nurses.

Enquiries can be made to the Administrative Secretary: Geraldine Hanley  at The Pilgrimage Office, Holy Cross College, Clonliffe Road, Dublin 3.
