Oblate Pilgrimage to Lourdes postponed to 2021

Lourdes Pilgrimage 2020

Dear Fellow Pilgrim,

It is with regret and disappointment that we have no option but to postpone our 2020 Pilgrimage to Lourdes until 2021, due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

Government and health authorities, both in Ireland and France, have placed restrictions on the movement of people and have introduced physical distancing as a means of reducing the spread of the virus.

The Oblate Pilgrimage to Lourdes - since 1883

The Missionary Oblates were the first group to organise pilgrimages to Lourdes from Britain and Ireland and have been organising pilgrimages to Lourdes since 1883. Every year pilgrims join us from Ireland, Britain and the Channel Islands. Some 100 Assisted Pilgrims, who require a special level of care and comfort, accompany the other pilgrims and stay in the Accueil Notre Dame. 

In coming to Lourdes, we follow in the footsteps of many thousands of pilgrims from all over the world who have come here before us, carrying with them – as we do – their hopes, burdens and dreams.
