Pilgrimage holiday in Lourdes in the South of France
19-26 2019 HCPT Switzerland completed it’s 4th annual Children’s
Pilgrimage to Lourdes. Would you like to take part next Easter, April
2020? Confirm your interest in joining the pilgrimage by emailing email@example.com or Contact Mike Johnson, organizer, directly by email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Every Easter, 1,000 disabled and disadvantaged children and young
people enjoy a life changing pilgrimage holiday in Lourdes in the south
of France. They are supported by volunteer doctors, nurses, helpers and
HCPT's Easter pilgrimage holidays are for disabled and disadvantaged
children and young people. HCPT groups stay in hotels in Lourdes.
HCPT is a charity with its roots in the Catholic faith.m, with a vision
of "changing lives through pilgrimage, sharing God's gifts of love,
friendship and joy". The charity exists to help HCPT pilgrims answer Mary's call to come to
Lourdes in procession, a request she made to us through Bernadette. Many describe their HCPT pilgrimage holiday as a "spiritual"
experience. For some this is rooted in their religious beliefs, for
others it is purely about the positive effects of caring, sharing and
seeing the world from the point of view of others. Masses form an important part of the HCPT experience. These are
designed with our pilgrims in mind, and the worship is always lively.

We believe that our children are God’s greatest gift! Our new nursery
will seek to provide care to infants and toddlers up to four years old,
that contributes to their wellbeing and complements and strengthens the
Christian nurturing the child experiences at home. We would like to
help you and your child build trusting relationships and feel a sense
of belonging within our community by reaching out in love and
