Diocese of Derry Lourdes Pilgrimage

Posted on 08th November 2019 | News

Five pupils from St. Mary’s participated in the annual Derry Diocesan Lourdes Pilgrimage which took place during Summer 2019.

Once again, the pupils from St.Mary’s volunteered their time to five days of service helping the supported pilgrims.  During the week, St. Mary’s pupils fully immersed themselves in the pilgrimage, helping to push wheelchairs for sick and frail pilgrims, helping with practical matters, assisting with carrying banners and equipment. The students were part of a large Youth Team, who also shared in their own activities – visiting the City of the Poor, attending the Torch Light Procession, having special times of prayer together and enjoying recreational times too.
