Our Lady of Lourdes RC Parish Pilgrimage to Rome & Assisi 16th-21st October 2010

Thirty three pilgrims gathered at Our Lady of Lourdes church car park early on Saturday morning to board the coach to Stansted airport for our flight to Rome.

The pilgrimage started the moment the coach doors closed with a pilgrimage prayer prepared by our Spiritual Director Fr Kevin Moule and thus fortified by the Holy Spirit our pilgrimage began. The flight was uneventful and we arrived on time at Ciampino Airport, Rome. We were met by the Pax Travel pilgrimage representative Misia Boccia who was to prove to be both knowledgeable and entertaining during our stay in Rome.

OLOL priests

On Friday June 18th we invited all the priests who have served in the parish over the years to return for a Mass in celebration of priesthood. And, so long as they weren't dead, or ill, or on a different continent, they all came. Unfortunately, England were playing in the World Cup that night, but those who heard Mass could only give thanks afterwards for missing the match. Those who chose football missed a wonderful occasion, and suffered through one of the worst England performances in recent times.

It is 6am, when most of us souls would normally be tucked under the duvet, but this was the beginning of no ordinary week.  Early – yes, bright – no, but shining like a beacon in the darkness was the beaming face of tour leader, Pat Bolger.  Was his heightened state of euphoria due to the fact that all of us pilgrims had arrived on time at O.L.O.L. or that his beloved Spurs had less than 24 hours earlier recorded their first win of the season? Who said it’s nearly Christmas?

After an uneventful journey along the North Circular and M.11 we arrived at Stansted Airport – with time to spare!  After we checked in some of us headed towards Starbucks for coffee and croissants (I’m sure I ordered a builder’s brew and a bacon sandwich).  However, disappointment was soon to surface as one of our aeroplane’s engines developed the “Monday morning blues” and refused to start. We disembarked and waited for Titan Airways to summon up a replacement.  After two and a half hours delay, we belatedly arrived in Lourdes and, after a hasty meal at the hotel, we all headed to the Domain of Lourdes for Mass in the magnificent Rosary Basilica.
