Our LadyThe parish will be going to Lourdes next year and I would be grateful for an early indication of interest. The dates will be from Monday the 20th to Friday the 24th of October 2008, the half term week. We expect to depart on a chartered flight from Stansted airport direct to Lourdes in the morning, returning in the early afternoon. The cost will be £455 per person. We are booked to stay at the Mediterranee Hotel, the same hotel that looked after us so well in 2006.

2008 is a very special year. It is the 150th Anniversary of the apparitions to St Bernadette and is also our 85th parish Anniversary! Because there is likely to be a strong demand I have been required to pay a deposit of £250.00 to secure our booking.
