Hosanna House and Children's Pilgrimage Trust

HCPT is a registered charity offering pilgrimage holidays, to Lourdes in the south of France, for disabled and disadvantaged people. Each year children from Holy Cross are supported to visit Lourdes at Easter supported by a member of staff who also volunteers with the charity. 

HCPT is a charity with its roots in the Catholic faith. We have a vision of "changing lives through pilgrimage, sharing God's gifts of love, friendship and joy".

The charity exists to help our pilgrims answer Mary's call to come to Lourdes in procession, a request she made to us through Bernadette.


HCTP Trust Prayer
Dear Loving God, in Lourdes,
Where Mary came and spoke with Bernadette,
She showed your love for us
In a wonderful way.
Thank you for touching us
With your love.
Help us to bring your love
To all those we are able to help,
Especially our families, our friends,
And all those we meet in the Trust
Always and forever.
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
St Bernadette, pray for us.
