Virtual Lourdes Pilgrimage 2021

oblate virtual pilgrimage 2021

Our Lourdes pilgrimage will take place online from 17-21 September 2021. This year, as we did last year, we will participate virtually in all our Pilgrimage events, most of which will be broadcast from the “Irish Lourdes” – the replica Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes at the Oblate Church in Inchicore, Dublin.

We will have contributions and interactive events with members of our Oblate pilgrimage family from the different areas of our province – Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales and the island of Jersey, and we invite you to participate from your home wherever you are. We hope you will have a prayerful, enjoyable, and life-giving pilgrimage with us online this year.

This year’s virtual pilgrimage will take place online from the 17-21 of September. 

You will be able to join the pilgrimage events here on our website – or if you prefer, on our facebook page or youtube channel (see links below).

Please God we will all be together in Lourdes next year.
