28 students and 7 staff make the 941 mile journey to the shrine of Our Lady in the south of France on May 28th 2016. They are assisting sick and disabled pilgrims who visit the place where Our Lady appeared to St. Bernadette in 1858. All who go to Lourdes seek a spiritual uplift through a week of prayer, good humour and service. The Bishop Walsh group is part of the pilgrimage organised by the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Thank-you to all who have given funds to support our students with their travel and accommodation costs as they help those in need. We would like to especially thank local parishes and the Catenians who have given so generously. Thank-you to Mrs Gould who leads the pilgrimiage party from Bishop Walsh.
