POSTPONED – KERRY DIOCESAN PILGRIMAGE TO LOURDES 2020
It is with regret and disappointment that we have no option but to postpone our 2020 Pilgrimage to Lourdes until 2021, due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. It will be rescheduled for 2nd – 7th Sept. 2021.
The government and health authorities both in Ireland and France have placed restrictions on the movement of people and introduced physical distancing as a means of reducing the spread of the virus.
As these are factors beyond our control we could not put a pilgrimage together and place our pilgrims at risk and vulnerable to infection. In the interest of health and safety for all our pilgrims the decision was taken to postpone.
Thank you for your understanding and may we be kept safe and able to look forward to coming together on Pilgrimage in 2021.
