School trips

Since 1975, HCPT has offered life changing Summer pilgrimages to Lourdes for disabled and disadvantaged people of all ages.

Pilgrims stay for a week at HCPT's Hosanna House, an attractive and tranquil home-from-home in nearby Bartrès – with spectacular views of the Pyrenees. The house was opened as a response to young pilgrims who wanted to enjoy the HCPT Lourdes experience as adults.

Over each Summer more than 1,500 people enjoy the house, its chapel and other fully accessible facilities, and its proximity to the shrine of Lourdes.

HCPT will organise every aspect of your pilgrimage holiday – from flights to dietary requirements.

Hosanna House is 10 minutes walk from the centre of the village of Bartrès, where St Bernadette spent much of her childhood with family. The parish church is popular for visitors, as well as the sheepfold where she tended her sheep – which is still in daily use.

Hosanna House is now popular for school stays - find more about the opportunities for your school below, and by contacting us on 01788 564646 or hq@hcpt.org.uk.
