We are pleased to announce that our 70th Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes will take place from Friday May 26 to Friday June 2 2023 and will be led by Bishop Terry. 

As an organising committee, we have been working extremely hard since our return from Lourdes this year to negotiate the best possible prices and we have taken on board the economic situation, inflation and the soaring energy and food costs.  

Bearing all that in mind, we have secured full board prices starting at £799 with a flight-only option at £550. Insurance is in addition, as is with any single room supplement. 

We encourage you to book early as demand for the pilgrimage is expected to be extremely high. 

To improve the pilgrimage experience, we have put in place the following booking system:

Pilgrims wishing to stay in the Accueil Notre Dame 

Please complete the supported pilgrim application available from our pilgrimage secretary, Pat Ling. Our medical team will review your application and will be in touch to carry out a nursing assessment on each applicant. Initially, booking will not be through Tangney Tours but directly with the pilgrimage, as detailed on the application forms. 

Those who wish to come as hotel supported pilgrims 

We will only be able to support those pilgrims with assistance from the designated hotel to the services and return. Due to limited numbers of volunteers, we will not be able to offer any personal care. 

You will be required to fill in a “Hotel Supported Pilgrim” application, available from Pat Ling, which will enable our medical team to assess your needs while on pilgrimage.
In addition to the “Hotel Supported Pilgrim” application, you will need to complete a Tangney Tours booking form. This should be completed after your nursing assessment. 

Pilgrims not requiring any assistance 

All other pilgrims not requiring any assistance are asked to complete either an online booking or paper booking form and send it to Tangney Tours. Application forms will be available during the visit of the relics of St Bernadette to both Middlesbrough and Hull.
