When does the Pilgrimage go to Lourdes?


The Hexham and Newcastle Diocesan Pilgrimage aims to go to Lourdes every year.

We always aim to travel by air from Newcastle Airport to Lourdes on the last Friday of July, returning to the North East one week later on the following Friday.

The Youth Coaches leave on the Thursday morning, before the Friday flights; leaving Lourdes the following Friday and getting back to the North East on the Saturday morning.

Our next Diocesan Pilgrimage will take place from Friday 26th July 2024 to Friday 2nd August 2024.
