The Diocese of Hexham & Newcastle is pleased to welcome everyone on our 2012 Pilgrimage to Lourdes.
Lourdes is a small town set in the foothills of the French Pyrenees where in 1858 Our Blessed Lady appeared to the young Bernadette Soubirous and where each year, we join together with those who are less able to celebrate, worship and pray.
In 2010 the Pilgrimage theme focused on the Sign of the Cross and in 2011 we reflected on the Our Father. This year the theme is ‘With Bernadette, praying the Rosary’.
Each evening in Lourdes, at the torchlight procession, we recite five decades from either the Joyful, the Sorrowful or the Glorious Mysteries or the Mysteries of Light and we are invited to focus our prayer on what the Lord has done for us and Mary’s part in it.
This year is an opportunity for all of us to rediscover the Rosary as a form of prayer.
We hope you will join us!
