Lourdes Kindness Pilgrimage 2024

The Lourdes Kindness Pilgrimage takes place from 26th June to 1st July  2024, led by Spiritual Director Fr Liam Scanlan.

What is the Lourdes Kindness Pilgrimage?

We are a small charity founded in 1989 following Peadar Clarke’s miraculous cure of MS while on pilgrimage in Lourdes. Since then, our aim is to raise enough money to fund our annual fully equipped Invalid Pilgrimage to Lourdes every June.

What do we do?

By means of various fundraisers, sponsorships and events throughout the year, we raise funds to bring those who are sick, elderly, or lonely to Lourdes and offer subsidies to volunteers who come as Official Carers to look after these people. We also bring our own team of nurses and doctors to look after our sick, and of course, our Spiritual Leaders to guide us all together in faith.

Why Lourdes “Kindness”?

The Kindness that was shown to Peadar and his wife Terry, by various people, volunteers, nurses,  and hotel staff – all strangers to them then – on their first trip to Lourdes, lives on in the charitable work of the Lourdes Kindness Pilgrimage. With your help, we can continue our mission of Kindness to others.

The Lourdes Kindness Pilgrimage is a fully escorted tour including:

  • Direct flight Dublin – Lourdes
  • Coach transfer to hotel on arrival
  • Hotel accommodation
  • Breakfast, lunch & dinner each day
  • Coach transfer from your hotel to Lourdes Airport
  • Direct flight Lourdes – Dublin
  • Check-in assistance at airports
  • 1 x 20kg check-in bag & 1 x small personal item under seat
