CASA Activities

Annual Lourdes Trip


CASA organises a pilgrimage to Lourdes every year for individuals of all ages and backgrounds, including those with physical, sensory, and intellectual disabilities.


This trip typically caters for approx 130 people and it’s not only CASA members who avail of it. We also liaise with hospitals and hospices to identify people with life limiting conditions that may wish to travel to Lourdes.


As with all of our activities, we offer one-to-one volunteer support on our Lourdes pilgrimages.


A Bit Of Feedback On Our Lourdes Trips

There are no words to describe how absolutely amazing this group is honestly. I have been a member of CASA for over 30 years. It is a charity very close to my heart. CASA has given me so much over the years. I have met so many wonderful people I am thrilled to be able to call friends. I have had the opportunity to go to Lourdes on pilgrimage many times, it is such a special experience. I am so very lucky to be a part of this wonderful organisation.

The joy I got from helping others. The wonderful friends I made and a very special trip to Lourdes with Casa in 1988 before I emigrated to Australia. I still write to one person that I looked after and I visit him every time I go home to Cork. He is almost 71 and going strong.
