Digital Pilgrimage: Not going to Lourdes? Share in the Oblate Pilgrimage to Lourdes from your home
Very soon, more than 600 pilgrims will depart for the Annual Oblate Pilgrimage to Lourdes. We travel from Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales. Many of us are travelling for the first time, some are members of our Lourdes Hospitality team, others are travelling as assisted pilgrims and some 100 young people are part of our Oblate Youth Service. We know that there are many who, for various reasons, were unable to travel with the pilgrimage this year. And so, we would like to extend an invitation to those of you at home to participate in our digital pilgrimage during our days in Lourdes.
Here’s how you can take part:
Daily Reflection and Prayer
We will be publishing a short reflection and prayer for each day of our pilgrimage from the 14th -19th of September. Sign up to receive our daily reflection and prayer to your email inbox each day – we will also be publishing these on our social media pages each day too.
We will share this on our social media sites here but you can also sign up to receive these daily reflections straight to your inbox by signing up here.

Through these short reflections, we join our prayers with the prayers of our Pilgrims in Lourdes. As we pray for them, we are assured that they are also praying for us.
