Relics of St Bernadette of Lourdes to visit the Diocese of Shrewsbury - Autumn 2022

St Bernadette of Lordes

The relics of St Bernadette will visit the Diocese of Shrewsbury next year as part of a national tour of Britain.

A section of bone from her thigh is to be taken to the major cathedrals and churches of the dioceses of England, Scotland and Wales in autumn 2022.

It will give British Catholics the chance to make a personal pilgrimage to the French saint, to venerate her and to pray for her intercession.

The Rt Rev. Mark Davies, the Bishop of Shrewsbury, said: “I look forward to welcoming the relics of St Bernadette of Lourdes to this Shrewsbury Diocese. Many pilgrims have journeyed to Lourdes over the years to pray alongside St Bernadette – and now it seems Lourdes is coming to us by the visit of the relics. May the example and prayers of St Bernadette lead us in 2022 to renewed faith and love for the Holy Eucharist.”

Her feast day 16th April 2022 has been added to our Feast Days page. The full article and details of St Bernadette's life are available on the Diosese of Shrewsbury website by clicking on this link.
