Each year, the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton organise a pilgrimage to Lourdes for one week in late July. Over 700 pilgrims travel with us, and 120 of those are sick, frail, elderly or disabled. Some pilgrims and their carers find it hard to fund their trip, and so from time to time we fund raise to subsidise their fare and accommodation in Lourdes.

Event details

Skydive for Lourdes

On Friday 14th September 2018, Bishop Richard and Lucy Barnes will parachute from an aeroplane to raise funds for our Lourdes Pilgrimage, and hope to raise enough money to send two Assisted Pilgrims to Lourdes, who would otherwise not be able to afford the cost of joining the pilgrimage. Neither skydiver has ever done anything like this before, so they will take great heart from your donation and support. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Well done Bishop Richard and Lucy - a wonderful thing to do for the Lourdes Pilgrimage which brings peace of mind to many hundreds of people every year and helps them to cope with day to day life, especially those who are sick in mind and body.
