We are delighted to present a Virtual Lourdes Pilgrimage beginning Saturday 19th of September to Wednesday 23rd of September.

Even though Covid-19 has prevented our pilgrimage from travelling to Lourdes this year, the Oblate Pilgrimage invites you to join with us online. Using the theme “Bringing Lourdes Home”, we will use these few days to prayerfully bring Lourdes into our hearts and into our homes.

We invite you to join us for these events:

  • Opening Service at 7.00 pm (September 19th)
  • Daily Prayer at 8.30 am
  • Mass each day at 12 noon (20th, 21st, 22nd and 23rd)
  • The Rosary at 7.00 pm (September 20th)
  • Way of the Cross at 7.00 pm (September 21st)
  • Service of Missioning at 7.00 pm (September 23rd)

You will be able to join the pilgrimage events on our website – or if you prefer, on our Facebook page or YouTube channel (see links below). These events will be online and are brought to you by members of the Oblate family in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the island of the Jersey. While we would have loved to have been together in person for these events, we have maintained small groups in line with Covid-19 restrictions to ensure the safety of all. Please God we will all be together in Lourdes next year.

We invite you to send your petitions for the pilgrimage, either to lourdes@oblates.ie or to the Mission Office, Oblate House of Retreat, Tyrconnell Road, Inchicore, Dublin 8 or to the Oblate Retreat Centre, Wistaston Hall, 89 Broughton Ln, Crewe CW2 8JS, UK.

Events will take place ONLINE each day at 8.30am, 12noon and 7.00pm.
