The month of August saw our diocesan pilgrimage ot Lourdes take place under the leadership of our Bishop. Much has been written about the pilgrimage on the daily blog on our diocesan website. For pictures, stories and reflections on the pilgrimage please visit http://www.salforddiocese.org.uk/
This year marked my 25th pilgrimage with the diocese. At the end of the pilgrimage on behalf of the Bishop of Lourdes, Bishop Brain presented me with a special award in recognition of that service. The Bishop of Lourdes has made me a Titular Chaplain (Canon) to the Basilica at Lourdes.
