Lourdes May 2015
Our group of 137 all returned safely from Lourdes and had a most enjoyable Pilgrimage. The Youth Group was much admired for their hard work and dedication during the Pilgrimage and we have received many letters of praise for them. Thanks to Carmel and all the team who help with this aspect of Parish life. The dedication of the young people in Lourdes is as a result of many years youth work in the Parish. Photos link
