Rev Father Michael McCoy is a member of The Catholic Diocese of Hexham And Newcastle Lourdes Pilgrimage Core Group headed by The Right Reverend Rober Byrne CO Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle.
In the group, the late Father Michael McCoy was appointed the Youth Section Co-ordinator.
“The Pilgrimage is a family made up of many, each individual member offering themselves in service of all. the pilgrimage draws people from every corner of our Diocese; young and old, those needing assistance and those able to offer it, pilgrims coming to Lourdes for the first time and those who come year after year. In response to Mary’s invitation to Bernadette, they have come as a family to Lourdes each summer and spend a week together in prayer, fellowship and service.”
“Planning and stewardship of the Pilgrimage fall to the Core Group who work throughout the year to plan our week in Lourdes. The Diocesan Hospitalité Council meets regularly throughout the year to support the pilgrimage and its work, both in Lourdes and at home.”
He will be sorely missed by the dioceses and the Newcastle Lourdes Pilgrimage Core Group headed.
