Lourdes Theme for 2023: ‘…that a chapel be built here…’

Join the Diocese of Brentwood pilgrimage to Lourdes

Dear Friends,

We can pray wherever we are. We can honour Mary, the Mother of God, in any country. But when Our Lady appeared to St Bernadette, she requested that a chapel be built above the Grotto. Why? Because she wanted people to come on pilgrimage to Lourdes.

And so, in the summer of 2023, I shall lead a pilgrimage from our diocese to Lourdes so that I, and my fellow pilgrims, can grow through prayer, through mutual support, and through the care of those who need assistance. Heaven meets earth in Lourdes. It is a place of grace. I hope you will join me.

Yours in Christ and Mary,

Bishop Alan Williams SM
