do something wonderful …

Every year the Fund supports young Catholics from all over the world who volunteer to do something wonderful and help those less fortunate than themselves. Whether this is on an individual project, or with others – or even if you are planning to travel to Lourdes or on the Jumbulance to help an assisted pilgrim – we would like to help you to achieve your aims.

A life changing experience

Most of the volunteers we have helped tell us about the way that their service for others has changed their life for ever. It could change yours too!

What’s stopping you?

Claire's year-long project taught her to trust God more as he has her best interests at heart. None of this would have been possible without the Bursary Fund.


Lourdes was an amazing opportunity for me. I was able to strengthen my faith with an amazing group of people, it was like nothing else I've experienced before.


I would absolutely recommend Lourdes to each and every person and I would love to go back again next year!


Follow your dreams by volunteering. It's so worthwhile, and has strengthened both my faith and my belief in humankind.
