Cathedral Centre, 3 Ford St. Salford. M3 6DP
Sunday 14th October 2018 – 2pm-3pm
Come along to a volunteer information meeting, where you can find out about volunteering with friendly and welcoming pilgrimage families on the 87th Salford Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes in July 2019. Volunteers enable sick pilgrims to fully experience the joy of pilgrimage, and to be at the heart of all that we do during our time in Lourdes. It is an extremely rewarding, fulfilling and often life changing experience.
We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities, both medical and non-medical, and have many roles in which you can get involved. During this short meeting there will be a talk to explain about the various roles, training, travel arrangements and about the pilgrimage programme. All are welcome.

The Slipper Chapel state of Our Lady of Walsingham will visit every English Catholic Diocese and Cathedral between 2018-2020 as we prepare for the rededication of England as the Dowry of Mary. The statue will come to Salford Cathedral on the weekend of 18th-20th October 2018. For full details of the weekend programme please see flyers at the back of the church or visit

From 26th September to 4th November, you’re invited to join other Christians for 40 days for Life – 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.
