About me

Introduction The Catholic Association (CA) has been around in one form or another since 1881 and ran its first pilgrimage to Lourdes in 1901. Its main purpose is to mastermind the CA Annual Pilgrimage to Lourdes, currently incorporating the diocesan pilgrimages of Clifton, East Anglia, Northampton, Portsmouth, Southwark, the Stonyhurst College Lourdes Pilgrimage and the British Carmelite Pilgrimage. Many of these groups and dioceses bring sick and disabled to Lourdes which is looked after by the CA Hospitalité. The CA also runs a successful group called the Glanfield Children’s Group – which takes many children with learning difficulties as well as chronic and terminal illness to Lourdes.
