Come to Lourdes with the Diocese of Westminster this summer!


This year's Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes is from 19th to 26th July 2024.  The new online booking platform is now ready to receive your booking.



Westminster's Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes led by Cardinal Vincent Nichols is one of the most significant pastoral events in the annual Diocesan calendar. Pilgrims travel in response to the call of our Blessed Mother through St Bernadette to “Go and tell the Priests to build a chapel here and that people should come in procession”. 

A breath-taking video inspired by the theme of this year's pilgrimage, produced by the Lourdes Sanctuary in France, is available to view by clicking here. 

The Lourdes Sanctuary also had an innovative new 'Pray with Lourdes' app, which can be downloaded here.  It is a wonderful opportunity to join the prayer community of the Sanctuary and maintain the link with Lourdes every day, with celebrations live from the Grotto, daily masses and rosaries, live 24/7 broadcasts of Lourdes pilgrimages and exceptional events.

This year, the initial application for a place on the pilgrimage is via online application form, and submitting Medical Information on the 2024 WDLP Medical Form, whether booking for the full package with the diocese or planning to join the pilgrimage directly in Lourdes.

The closing date for all applications for the pilgrimage this year is Tuesday 30th April 2024.

Please note that completion and return of the form does not automatically mean you will be accepted onto the pilgrimage. Assisted Pilgrim places will rely on the availability of enough helpers and clinicians, and this will be confirmed with you soon as possible, but will take at least three weeks after your booking form has been received.

Those unable to complete a booking form online are invited to contact the Pilgrimage Office on 020 7798 9173 for assistance.

We look forward to welcoming you on our 2024 pilgrimage.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us

St Bernadette, pray for us
