Overview of the event

The Order of Malta’s 58th annual pilgrimage to Lourdes.

Over 200 young members and volunteers from across the Order attended the Vision 2050 Reunion in Lourdes this year.

Vision 2050 also welcomed the Grand Chancellor, H.E. Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager, the Grand Hospitaller, H.E. Dominique Prince de la Rochefoucauld-Montbel, and President of the Lebanese Association, H.E. Marwan Sehnaoui.

The Grand Chancellor was encouraged by the growing number of young people taking part in Vision 2050.  He confirmed that this effort is a high priority and has already demonstrated how valuable the collaboration of international groups is as a resource.

The President of the Lebanese Association was delighted to see such a large number of Caravan and Lebanon Camp alumni present in Lourdes and the Grand Hospitaller emphasised the work of the youth on an international level, and is greatly anticipating the involvement of Vision 2050 members at the International Summer Camp in France this summer.
