About the Lourdes Group of the Krijtberg:
Dear pilgrims, in mid-November 2020 we received the news that our national pilgrimage organisation VNB had stopped organising trips. For us, as Lourdes Committee Krijtberg, this was a blow. The Corona era is to blame for the termination of the VNB.
We have had our Lourdes Department in Krijtberg since 1985 and have always enjoyed doing so. Many of you have travelled with us to Lourdes. We would like to thank you for your confidence in us and in the VNB. Our stand in the Krijtberg selling second-hand religious articles went like clockwork, also because so many people supported our cause. From those funds we were able to take many pilgrims and helpers to Lourdes.
We are very sad that we have to stop so suddenly with our beautiful work. But we are grateful for all those wonderful years. We would also like to thank the Fathers of the Krijtberg for all the times they have accompanied us as pastoral guides.
We will certainly meet in Krijtberg with warm greetings, Wil Groen, Truus Groen, Gerwin Roffel and Father Ben Frie SJ.
