A Kairos week in Lourdes

Lourdes-2013-postcardTwenty Kairos men and women travelled to Lourdes last month to help in the hospital there with disabled and sick people who were on pilgrimage from Dublin. This is the fifth year that director Mossie Lyons and a group from Kairos have joined the annual Oblate Anglo-Irish Pilgrimage.

“What stands out about the week,” says Mossie, “is the feeling of camaraderie, fun, unity and generosity of spirit within our group. Then there was the satisfaction, self-reflection and sense of joy in helping others in this special place. And it was a proud moment for all of us when three Kairos men were awarded five-year service medals.”
