LOURDES PILGRIMAGE 2020:
After consultation with the tour operator, and having reviewed the present situation in Lourdes and the continuing closure of the Sanctuary, the Diocesan Pilgrimage administration team has decided that the Derry Pilgrimage scheduled to travel at the start of July will not take place. Please God, it can be rescheduled for summer 2021. Any deposits or payments made already will either be refunded or may be used as deposits in whole or part for 2021 in accordance with the wishes of the individual pilgrims. This may take some time as the pilgrimage office is currently closed in accordance with Diocesan directives. All youth deposits will be refunded, as rescheduling does not appear to be an option for the youth scheduled to travel at the moment. We very much regret the necessity of this very unusual step but believe we have reached a stage where no other course of action is possible.
Hoping that all our past and aspiring pilgrims, their families and friends stay safe and well at this difficult time and entrusting you to the care of Our Lady of Lourdes,
