About 50 young persons go on the Cloyne Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes each year. They volunteer through the second level schools. They are required to be over 16 years of age on or before 1st June 2017 and under 18 years of age on 6th June 2017. The cost and other details are available in the second level schools. The youth section is fully compliant with best practice and procedures for working with young people as outlined in the policy document ‘Safeguarding Children in the Diocese of Cloyne’. Parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and others might help a few young persons to represent Charleville parish on the pilgrimage.
