Welcome to the website of the Catholic Association (CA). As the Chairman of the Catholic Association Trust, I am proud that the Association has been of service to the Church for over a hundred years. Today the CA and its Hospitalité organise an annual pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady at Lourdes, incorporating the dioceses of Clifton, East Anglia, Northampton, Portsmouth, Southwark, with the British Province of the Carmelites, Stonyhurst College and the Glanfield Children's Group.
We hope that this website will be helpful to you, not only in providing information about Lourdes and practical details about our pilgrimage, but also in supporting you during your own life-pilgrimage to encounter the face of the living God.
First time on this website? Please have a look at our Frequently Asked Questions. Or, if you would like to volunteer as a helper, or come as an assisted pilgrim on our next Pilgrimage, please visit our Pilgrimage 2017 here.
