Parish Pilgrimage 2018
This year’s Parish Pilgrimage went be to Padua and Assisi. We flew from Manchester to Venice at 7.30am on Monday 11th June and a coach then took us to Padua, staying for 2 nights. On Wednesday we left Padua on the Feast of St. Anthony going by coach to Assisi, where St Francis was told by Jesus from the Cross “Rebuild my Church”. On Saturday 16th June we flew home to Manchester.
There are a selection of photos on the Noticeboard.

The very successful Parish Pilgrimage to Spain took place from Monday 4th July to Saturday 9th July 2016. Our  itinerary can be read HERE

Parish to Lourdes - 2015
The parish pilgrimage in 2015 was to Lourdes from 18th to 22nd May,
While in Lourdes we took part in the Torchlight Procession and the Blessed Sacrament Procession and visited all the places associated with St. Bernadette, as well as all the other pilgrimage places in Lourdes.

                              Pilgrimage to Rome 2014
In 2013 we visited the shrine of St. Vincent de Paul, the Rue du Bac (Miraculous Medal shrine), Sacre Coeur, and Notre Dame in Paris as well as the shrine of St. John Vianney in Ars, the convent of St. Bernadette in Nevers and the Shrine of St. Therese of Lisieux.
Pope Francis only sees cameras

From all accounts Fr. Paul with 32 parishioners enjoyed a great trip to Rome in 2014.

Mike Davis took this picture of Pope Francis at the Wednesday audience in St Peters square and described it well with the title - ‘Pope Francis only sees cameras!’.

We are hoping for some more pictures

If you would like to travel with the Rochdale group next year, please contact Angela or Dave Parkinson on 01706 341114 or email
Rochdale Catenians are keen to ensure that young volunteers (aged 16 to 24) can benefit from the Catenian Association Bursary Fund, which can provide grants to young helpers on Lourdes Pilgrimages.
Please remember that the application and approval must be received in advance of the pilgrimage. Ideally applications for a group should be submitted at the same time to simplify the admin but that should not stop individuals applying for a grant for this or any other voluntary work for the benefit of the community and requiring some funding.
Click on the Rochdale Catenians link above; find the Bursary Fund Page and Head office link for further information
