The Annual Stonyhurst Pilgrimage is a response to Our Lady’s request to “come to Lourdes in procession” and “bathe in the spring”.

Since our first Pilgrimage in 1964, everyone who has joined us has enjoyed a rewarding and memorable experience.  Discover how to join our next Pilgrimage opposite.

As before, we’ll join groups from the dioceses of East Anglia, Clifton, Northampton, Portsmouth and Southwark, the British Province of Carmelites and the Glanfield Children’s Group as part of the Catholic Association Pilgrimage.

The Catholic Association operates within the facilities placed at its disposal by the Hospitalité de Lourdes, which is the principal body controlling activities in the Domaine (the part of Lourdes which contains the Grotto, the basilicas and St Bernadette’s Church) and two acceuils (hospitals) for sick pilgrims.

All pilgrims, especially those of us serving as handmaids and brancardiers, take directions from officials who are not members of our group, to enable as many people as possible, particularly those who would otherwise be unable to compete with the enormous crowds, to join in the various ceremonies.
