Carmelite Pilgrimage to Lourdes - 27th August 2010

Friday 27th August

After a final celebration of the Eucharist and thanksgiving prayers, the Catholic Association pilgrimage drew to a close. Most pilgrims returned to Britain in the afternoon.

Looking ahead to next year, Matt Betts, a member of the Carmelite group who will take on the role of Chief Brancardier (coordinator of male helpers), gave us a video interview (below).

Helen Carroll, a former helper on the pilgrimage and now an Assisted Pilgrim, also shared some of her experience of Lourdes.
