Pilgrimages

Parish Pilgrimages

Every year groups of parishioners from our Church make pilgrimages. Overseas pilgrimage destinations include Rome, Lourdes, the Holy Land, Medjugorje, and Fatima. We also conduct occasional pilgrimages closer to home to Southwark Cathedral, Walsingham, Aylesford Priory and from Minster Abbey to the Shrine of St. Augustine in Ramsgate.

For pilgrimages to Lourdes in 2021 – Plans are underway with Covid measures in place e.g. vaccine, full comprehensive insurance etc for the HCPT Summer Group 587 to go in late summer 2021 and the HCPT Children’s Pilgrimage Holiday to go at half-term in October 2021. Please contact Annie Judge via anniejudge@hotmail.com or on 01227 700553 / 07866515797. If you or someone you know would like to join us as a child/teenager or helper for our pilgrimage to Lourdes, please contact us for details and/or take a leaflet from the Church Narthex.

Sometimes, a pilgrimage is part of a larger event, such as World Youth Day which takes place every three years. The next World Youth Day takes place in Lisbon in 2022.

If you, or someone you know, would like to participate in any of our pilgrimages, look out for announcements on our website, our Parish newsletters and on our noticeboard at the back of the Church (the Narthex) or speak to one of our Priests for more information.
