The Feast of the Assumption 2017

It was another successful pilgrimage to Lourdes with 3 churches combined. We made the trip by coach and air. Our friends at hotel Jeanne D'Arc and Paradis were ever so pleasant to receive our pilgrims.

Fr. Ekpe led a coach from Edmonton and Varghese led another from Wembley. Look how cheerful Fr Ekpe was...

At the High Stations in Lourdes ...

And in Garvanie with Varghese anna, ever so jovial...

On our return journey home, we followed in the footsteps of Bernadette to Nevers - the Convent of St. Gildard, where her incorrupt body lies. We celebrated Mass here at the chapel and had an un-pretentious, simple breakfast served by the nuns.

Our pilgrimage ends with a visit to the Chapel of the Miraculous Medal, the chapel of St. Catherine Laboure where she was given the design of the Medal by Our Lady.

We invite you all to join us again. It could only get better...!

Ave Maria.
