Lourdes Pilgrimage

As you are all aware, we are experiencing very unusual circumstances both here in the UK and in France due to the Coronavirus. When considering any group pilgrimage, the paramount importance is the safety and wellbeing of our pilgrims and assisted pilgrims.   With this is mind, the Bishop has made the difficult decision to cancel the Clifton Diocese Pilgrimage to Lourdes this year.
