JOINING OUR PILGRIMAGE
Assisted Pilgrims are the heart of our Pilgrimage family. If you require help or assistance to come on pilgrimage find out more about becoming an Assisted Pilgrim.
As a working pilgrimage we welcome helpers aged 18+ to serve and provide assistance throughout the week. Find out more about becoming a helper.
We are reliant on a volunteer team of clinicians, including doctors and nurses, to ensure we care safely for our Assisted Pilgrims, find out more here.
WHY COME TO LOURDES
Our Lady's invitation to come to Lourdes on Pilgrimage calls to us all in different ways. Our Ampleforth Pilgrimage is a happy and prayerful one, where we all offer service to each other throughout the week, and beyond. For many pilgrims going to Lourdes is the highlight of the year.
