Oblate Pilgrimage to Lourdes postponed to 2022

Lourdes Pilgrimage 2020

Dear Fellow Pilgrim,

Due to the continuing pandemic, our Oblate 2021 Lourdes pilgrimage will once again take place online, from 17-22 September. Repeating last year’s format, most pilgrimage events will be broadcast from our ‘Irish Lourdes” – the replica Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes at the Oblate Church in Inchicore, Dublin. 

There will also be contributions and interactive events with members of our Oblate family from the different areas of our province – Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.

We invite you to participate from your own home – where ever you are. We hope you will have a prayerful, enjoyable and life-giving online pilgrimage. 

So, save the dates! Our pilgrimage will begin on 17th September and close on 21st September. We hope you will take time to join us as together we once again experience “Lourdes” at home. Even though we are apart, Lourdes brings us together, wherever we are.

Your sincerely,
Fr. Lorcán O’Reilly OMI
