Lourdes: Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish will be making its annual pilgrimage to Lourdes from the 7th to the 12th September, incorporating the Dublin Diocesan Pilgrimage.
This will be our 9th year going as a parish, in which we have established ourselves as a very successful pilgrimage, appealing to many people outside the parish.
While in Lourdes we stay in Hotel Solitude, just 4 minutes from the Grotto. This is a family run hotel, and we partake in some of the more moving ceremonies, leaving you with plenty of time to see the sights of Lourdes which is an amazing city for many different reasons.
Why not come and see for yourself. Booking forms available from the Parish Office – deposit €50.
