The Relics of St Bernadette

In September and October this year, the relics of St Bernadette will journey on pilgrimage to England, Scotland and Wales for the very first time. This very special once in a lifetime event will provide an opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to experience the special gifts and charisms of Lourdes. The Relics will spend time at both of Liverpool’s Cathedrals, along with St Mary’s Church in Chorley. Below you will find the time-table for the visit to the Metropolitan Cathedral.
