Octave Family Pilgrimage

Saturday 14 May 2022 – 15:45-18:00

All families are invited to join a special pilgrimage from St Alphonse to the Cathedral next Saturday as part of the traditional Octave of Our Lady – the highpoint of the Luxembourg Church year.

Start: Church of St Alphonse – 15:45

End: Notre-Dame Cathedral – 18:00

The pilgrimage will begin with a programme led by our catechists to learn about the history of the Octave and to explore the Church of St Alphonse through a treasure hunt! It will also be an opportunity for our First Holy Communion children to practise their singing before their big day.

The English-speaking Community will then make a procession from St Alphonse to the Cathedral where we will meet up with processions from other linguistic communities.

Cardinal Hollerich will welcome the children before we end the pilgrimage with a short prayer service before the statue of Our Lady in the Cathedral.
