Appeal for Nurses!

We are appealing for registered nurses, doctors and qualified healthcare assistants who may be interested in volunteering their skills to help support sick and disabled pilgrims who need particular care whilst travelling on this year's pilgrimage. If you think you may be able to help, or know someone who may be interested, we are eager to hear from you. Financial support is availalbe to those involved in healthcare.

Pilgrimage Contribution Scheme

Dear Pilgrim,

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you about our Pilgrimage Contribution Scheme.

The purpose of the scheme is to help the Lourdes  pilgrimage committee meet the ever increasing financial costs, which it faces year on year, as it endeavours to organise the diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes each summer.

A great gift idea for Mother's Day!
