Lourdes Update

The annual Archdiocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes will definitely take place from Friday 26th July to Friday 2nd August and will be led by Bishop Tom Williams. Concerns had been expressed following the recent floods in the French Shrine but everything is in place and the pilgrimage will leave, as planned, on Friday 26 July. The Lourdes Youth Pilgrimage will also leave as planned on Thursday 25 July. Please remember the people of Lourdes in your prayers as they try to recover from the devastation caused by the recent flooding.

Sea Sunday

Next Sunday is Sea Sunday when we are invited to remember and pray for seafarers. They are truly strangers on our shores, for their lives and work are hidden from us and yet we depend totally upon them. The collection next weekend will be for the Apostleship of the Sea who visit, welcome and support seafarers while they are in port.
