St Patrick’s & St Anthony’s Parishes
Pilgrimage to Lourdes
23rd – 27th July 2018
By popular request, Lorraine Miller is organising a joint Parishes Pilgrimage to Lourdes in July 2018.
We will be flying from London Stansted directly to Lourdes, with coach transfer from Corsham and Melksham, and staying at the 3* Riossy Hotel, which is near to the Grotto. The Hotel has 187 rooms, all with private bathrooms, reversible air conditioning, hairdryer, satellite TV and free Wi-Fi. You can choose from a double, twin, triple (3 single beds) or quadruple (1 double & 2 singles). (Prices are listed on the poster on the Church notice board)
Whilst we are there, you are free to do as you wish, but you might enjoy an afternoon trip to Gavarnie (Pyrenees, snow-capped mountains and highest waterfall in Europe) at an additional cost. Alternatively, you can catch a bus near the Grotto (less than €10) and take a short trip to go up the Funicular railway to the Pic du Jer where you can see the highest Spanish peak of the Pyrenees and the highest grottos in France.
To get a better idea of numbers, if you are seriously interested, please could you place your names on the sheet on the notice board.
