Parish of the Immaculate heart of Mary

Society of Our Lady of Lourdes

To enable and encourage pilgrims, mainly from England, to visit Lourdes, minimising barri ers of cost and disability.  Originally formed in 1912 by the Catholic Association to care for the sick on the English National Pilgrimage to Lourdes, the Society of Our Lady of Lourdes took over running the whole pilgrimage in 1922. 

Still maintaining this heritage of specialising on care for those who require the most support to travel, each year the Society organises an annual pilgrimage for the sick to Lourdes that takes place in early summer.  A number of parishioners take part in this annual event.

In addition to this pilgrimage, the Society aims to provide support and information to all pilgrims to Lourdes, organise other events and to promote devotion to Our Lady of Lourdes.

While not a Parish Organisation the Society's Main Office is located within our grounds and the work they undertake is very close to our hearts.
