LEGIONARY PILGRIMS

Over 1,000 will go to Lourdes

,000 active and auxiliary members, together with 25 priests and 50 sick, will make the Legion of Mary pilgrimage to Lourdes one of the biggest from this country. Under the leadership of Archbishop Heenan of Liverpool, it will leave Victoria in two special trains at 7.40 p.m. on Easter Monday, and will be joined in Lourdes by an air contingent from the north.

The intentions of the pilgrimage are threefold : in thanksgiving to Our Lady; for the conversion of England; and for the Church of Silence. It is one of the ways in which the Legion is celebrating the Lourdes Centenary Year.

An extensive recruiting campaign is also being organised; each branch is asked to set itself a target of five, 10, or 15 new members in honour of the decades of the Rosary. It is also hoped to establish a national headquarters in London, to be known as Magnificat House.
