This is our vision, the vision of The Irish Pilgrimage Trust, and we will affirm it as Directors, Staff, Leaders and Volunteers in the following ways.
We affirm our special relationship with Lourdes through our pilgrimages
We will welcome people to share our pilgrim journey as volunteers, supporters and benefactors.
We will invite pilgrims to travel with The Trust on a spiritual journey with a loving family of friends, where all individuals are valued and cherished as they are. Whereas we cannot bring all people on pilgrimage, we will give preference to those who are disadvantaged, ill, disabled or marginalized.
We will work closely with our sister organisation HCPT and we will support the international spread of the vision / organisation, particularly to Romania, Slovakia and Croatia.
We will encourage other groups and organisations to share our vision by welcoming them to Kilcuan, our home in Clarinbridge or Cois Cuain our home in Kilrane, Rosslare Harbour.
We will welcome volunteers on our biennial sponsored cycle to Lourdes and our biennial Camino de Santiago Walk.
We will be open to new ways to share our vision with others.
