Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage 2021: Opening Service
Date(s) - 17/09/2021
8:30 am - 8:00 pm
Watch the Opening Service at 7pm:
Our online Lourdes pilgrimage for 2021 , ‘Lourdes: Bringing us Together”, begins with our opening service at 7pm, presented by Kairos Community Trust, a wonderful organisation based in London, dedicated to helping homeless men and women with drug and alcohol problems. Every year, Kairos volunteers are part of the Oblate Lourdes Pilgrimage team, and in this service, will welcome us and share with us as we begin our pilgrimage together. You might like to light a candle in your home as part of this service.
Thank you for praying with us as we embark on our pilgrimage journey over the next few days. Remember to send your prayer intentions to email@example.com – we will pray for your intentions each day throughout the pilgrimage and, afterwards all intentions will be brought to the Grotto in Lourdes and prayed for there.
If you still have not registered for our evening program on Sunday 19th September – an interactive Meditation on Zoom presented by Fr Ray Warren OMI at 7pm – you can do so at the link below. Fr Ray is the director of De Mazenod House Retreat and Spirituality Centre in Tower Hill, and leads us in a short time of prayer, meditation and sharing on our theme, Lourdes: Bringing us Together.
