After a long journey to Lourdes, students arrived in Lourdes on Saturday afternoon, 26 May. Following a week of service to Our Lady helping the supported pilgrims 31 students were left feeling very tired but fulfilled.
During their time at Lourdes students also enjoyed an afternoon at Lac du Lourdes, playing football and relaxing by the lake enjoying the beautiful scenery. The highlight of the trip for many was time spent with the supported pilgrims, at the Garden Party playing bingo, talking and singing ‘old time’ favourite songs.
The students also took along knitted blankets for the pilgrims which had been made by the Trinity “Knit and Natter” knitting group which is held once a fortnight at the Sixth Form College.
A very productive, enriching week, friendships and memories made that will last a lifetime.
