AGROUP of Exeter Catholics who have held a number of All-Night Vigils are arranging weekend flights to Lourdes this summer from Exeter Airport.
Applications are now being received for five provisional bookings during May, June and August.
Each plane will carry a priest as Chaplain, and a layman who will be in charge of material needs. Some of these voluntary leaders have already been to Lourdes on many occasions.
Exeter now joins the flood of AllNight Vigil Pilgrims who, since 1958, have made more than 13.000 Vigils in Lourdes flying from London, the Midlands and the North of England. The Reeler Branch of the Group has the approval of Bishop Restieaux of Plymouth and the Vicar General, Mgr. P. J. Tobin.
