Diocesan Pilgrimage


A pilgrimage is a journey or search of great moral or spiritual significance. For Christians, typically, it is a journey to a shrine or other location of importance to our faith.  A person who makes a pilgrimage is called a pilgrim. Pilgrimages with the Diocese of Limerick include the annual diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes and the World Youth Day Pilgrimage.
