Holy Door of Mercy

In this Year of Mercy, many churches and pilgrimage sites have been asked by Pope Francis to open a Holy Door of Mercy. In the UK a number of Shrines associated with the CA have opened Holy Doors, including Walsingham; Shrine of Saint Jude, and all of the diocesan cathedrals. Do consider a visit!

In February 2016, the Bishop of Lourdes opened a Holy Door at Saint Michael’s gate entrance to the Sanctuary. Mgr Bill Saunders was out there to witness the ceremony, and has sent us some photos of this occasion, below:

Enid Price

We are sorry to report the death of Enid Price who has travelled to Lourdes as an Assisted Pilgrim in recent years and for many years as a nurse (at least 25!).
Please keep her family, friends, and Enid in your prayers.
May she Rest in Peace, and rise in glory!
Thanks to Andy Joyce for sharing this photo.
