Join the Brentwood Catholic Youth Service on our hugely popular Summer Lourdes Pilgrimage.

We travel alongside the diocese to assist the elderly and infirm on their annual pilgrimage, particularly those in wheelchairs.
Alongside this we also run a retreat, daily Masses and excursions for the young people, as well as experiencing the Lourdes Torchlight Procession and Blessed Sacrament Procession.
Please be aware, this event is always heavily oversubscribed.


This year’s pilgrimage will be leaving Brentwood on the morning of Saturday 20th July and returning on the morning of Saturday 27th July. Exact timings will be confirmed nearer the time.
