The Irish Pilgrimage Trust is an organisation which takes young people with special needs on pilgrimage to Lourdes at Easter each year.
The pilgrimage is designed specifically with young people in mind and the liturgies during the week are adapted to appeal to the young people selected to travel.
The large contingent who travel are divided into small groups and all Carers travel as volunteers paying for themselves and fundraising to cover the cost of the young people.
Next Easter Group 108 will travel to Lourdes bringing 12 young people from Longford and Westmeath. It is a very special week and a wonderful experience for the young people from the region who travel.
Next weekend, November 5 and 6 the annual church gate collections for The Irish Pilgrimage Trust will be held in Co Longford to help cover the costs of those selected to travel.
Any donation which you can make will be very much appreciated.
Please support this very worthy cause.
