OMV UK Lourdes Pilgrimage

OMV UK Lourdes Pilgrimage

This year the OMV will be making their annual pilgrimage to Lourdes during the last week of July. We will be taking 50 guests with us to France and 200 volunteers, most of whom are between the ages of 17-25. We travel by coach and plane; most of our first time volunteers travelling by coach, and our guests and the rest of the pilgrimage travelling by plane. In Lourdes we base ourselves between the St Frai, where our guests stay, and the Hotel Alliance which is accommodation for our volunteers.

We have lots of activities planned for the week and will be taking part in processions and masses in the Domain along with pilgrims from around the world. One of the highlights of the week is a trip to Gavarnie, a town in the Pyrenees, where we enjoy sitting by the river and the beautiful scenery. We also have a music evening during the week where guests and volunteers alike perform and fun is had by all!
