All helpers are required to attend our Briefing Day held on the Sunday prior to our departure. If you cannot attend then please let the Lourdes Office know.
There are several aims of Briefing Day -
- Begin the spiritual journey we make together when we go on pilgrimage to Lourdes
- Introduce the spiritual theme for the year
- Introduce you to your leaders and other helpers in your group together with your nurses, chaplain and doctor
- Spend time building your hotel group teams
- Discover your own strengths and skills as well as the others in your group
- Discuss the practicalities of the pilgrimage including the journey and your responsibilities within that
- Obtaining your uniforms
There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and the day finishes with the celebration of Mass.
This year's timetable will be available nearer the date.
