Lourdes Pilgrimage

Each year around 700 pilgrims journey to Lourdes with the Arundel & Brighton Diocesan Pilgrimage. A centre for miraculous healing, Lourdes has also become a spiritual home for many with disabilities and is a place where we can truly see each individual celebrated, as a valued child of God. An experience of pilgrimage to Lourdes is often life-changing.
