We'd like to take this opportunity to tell you that starting on the evening of Friday, September 17 and finishing on Tuesday 21st, we will be hosting a 'virtual' Lourdes Pilgrimage. As you will know, because of Covid-19, the pilgrimage had to be postponed for 2021.
However, based on the theme, "Lourdes: Bringing us Together" we will use these few days to prayerfully bring Lourdes into our hearts. We invite you to send your petitions for the pilgrimage, either to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the Mission Office, Oblate House of Retreat, Tyrconnell Road, Inchicore, DUBLIN 8. We will send more details soon on how you can join with us for these special days.
