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.

Go to Lourdes pilgrimage


Being loved and being kept safe go to the very core of the Church’s Ministry to children and vulnerable adults. The work of safeguarding has to be seen within the overall mission of the Church. The Diocese of  Arundel and Brighton is committed to Safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church.
