On Thursday the 19th of January, the girls that travelled to Lourdes last September gave their personal testimony of their experience in Lourdes. They spoke to their own peers about their personal experience inLourdes, their encounters with the Pilgrims, their own faith and the fun times they experienced.
Each girl spoke from their heart and all who were present in the Teresa Ball Auditorium were very impressed. Ms. Beausang from the Dublin Diocesan Lourdes Provincial Council was invited to attended to hear the girls experience. She was very grateful for the invite and said “I thought they did a superb job and captured the spirit of the week inLourdesvery well. It was lovely to see that it had been such a positive influence on all aspects of their lives”.
Two of the five girls that travelled to Lourdes the first time with Ms. Donohue were also present. Four of the five girls that travelled to Lourdes in 2010 for the first time, returned to volunteer in September 2011 as independent volunteers. They are planning to return again for the third time in September 2012. May God bless all the work they complete.
The five girls that will travel in September 2012 were also present at the presentation. We in Beaufort are very proud of the Dublin Diocesean Pilgrimage to Lourdes Tradition.
