–         York at approx 7.30 pm.

The cost is a flat rate of £15 per person and we will have up to ten free child places (under sixteen and accompanied by an adult) on a first come first served basis.

If anyone St Therese parish wishes to go on the pilgrimage by coach please let us know ASAP by calling 01904 671767 or by emailing: [email protected]

We will need a deposit of £10 per person by the end of May.
