Archdiocese of Armagh, Virtual Pilgrimage to Lourdes 2021
The Covid 19 pandemic has meant that we are again unable to travel to Lourdes as an Archdiocese in 2021. The annual pilgrimage to Lourdes is a point in the Archdiocesan year that many look forward to and so Fr Mark, Fr Michael and the Lourdes Pilgrimage committee has developed a Virtual Pilgrimage that will again be available online.
You can access each of the Pilgrimage Masses, Holy Hours, Rosaries etc in this years programme by clicking any of the images or links below:
