For over 50 years, The Welsh National Pilgrimage has travelled to Lourdes with one clear purpose, to take pilgrims, both assisted and able bodied, to the Grotto in Lourdes.
Our pilgrimage community is comprised of many members; pilgrims, assisted pilgrims, a medical team, both youth and adult helpers and clergy, all of whom unite together in prayer and service of each other, in response to the call of Our Lady to St Bernadette.

The logistical and operational aspects are undertaken by a team, referred to as our “Core Group”, who ensure that we are able to travel to Lourdes each year. The team is comprised of representatives from across the pilgrimage, with a strong devotion to Our Lady and experience of how our pilgrimage works.

This group meets regularly throughout the year and in addition to ensuring arrangements are in place for each pilgrimage, organise events throughout the year, which support the ethos of the pilgrimage and its wider community. More information relating to each section of the pilgrimage can be found in the volunteer’s section of the website.

No upcoming events at the moment


If you think you would like to join us, or simply want to chat about any aspect of the
pilgrimage, please get in touch via email, initially, and we could look at meeting in person to
answer any questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you!
