Fatima Pilgrimage 2017

FATIMA PILGRIMAGE 2017: Archbishop Leo Cushley is delighted to invite you and your family to join him on this year's Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh Pilgrimage to Fatima in Portugal, 19 - 26 October 2017.

The visit coincides with the centenary of Our Lady's appearance to three young shepherds in the small Portuguese town and will be led by Archbishop Cushley himself.

"To be able to lead our Archdiocese on pilgrimage to Fatima during this special anniversary year is a wonderful thing," said the Archbishop 2 February.

"During our seven days in Portugal we'll learn about the relevance of Our Lady of Fatima's message for our lives today. It will be a week of prayer, friendship and great fun too."

"Having worked and lived in Lisbon for three years, I'm also really looking forward to introducing our pilgrims to the beauty of Portugal: a wonderful people of great gentleness and faith, lovely churches, a beautiful Atlantic coast, interesting food and the best fruit in the universe!"

Flights will be direct from Scotland. Pilgrims will stay in a 3* hotel close to the sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima. A full programme of spiritual events and enjoyable excursions will be laid on.
