Join the Hexham & Newcastle Diocese pilgrimage to Lourdes

Lourdes Theme for 2018
"Do whatever He tells you"

Dear Pilgrims,

The life of the Blessed Virgin Mary has constantly been directed towards the Son she brought into the world. From the very moment of her conception, publicly revealed to St Bernadette in Lourdes in 1858, Our Blessed Lady has always pointed towards her Son Jesus. In Lourdes the mosaic above the Sanctuary in the Rosary Basilica shows an image of Mary with the words “Par Marie a Jesus”, “Through Mary to Jesus”.

This year we are asked to reflect on the words of the Mother of Jesus at the wedding feast at Cana in Galilee, “Do whatever he tells you”. These words show us how much Mary trusts her Son when she tells those around her just to do whatever he asks them to do.

On our pilgrimage in 2018 we will try to reflect on these words and also examine what it means to place our trust in both Jesus and Mary.

I look forward to seeing you on our Pilgrimage and taking part in a very wonderful spiritual experience in Lourdes.

With Best Wishes

Fr Peter Stott

Pilgrimage Director
