At the end of July a good number of priests, young people and laity from all corners of the diocese  travel together with our Bishop to Our Lady's Shrine in Lourdes and this this year was no exception.

Here are a few photos from the Pilgrimage.  A more detailed account of the pilgrimage can be found on our diocesan website.

The Diocesan Candle and other group candles are processed to the Grotto. 
The candles will remain burning at the Grotto, taking all our intentions to Our Lady during the year.
