Fr Patrick O’Connor
Honorary Chaplain of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes
Pilgrimage Director 2008-2016
Retired Parish Priest of Balby & Edlington
Former parish priest of St Theresa’s, Sheffield
We are sad to announce that Fr Pat O’Connor died Sunday 18th June 2023, shortly after receiving the sacraments and praying the Glorious mysteries. Fr Pat was Pilgrimage Director from 2008 to 2016, and has been part of our pilgrimage family for over 30 years as a dedicated Chaplain & Hotel Co-ordinator. He was appointed an Honorary Chaplain of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes by the Bishop of Tarbes & Lourdes in recognition of his contribution to the shrine. When we couldn’t travel to Lourdes in 2020, and couldn’t even gather together in Church, we had a “Virtual Pilgrimage”. Fr Pat loved the Torchlight Procession, so there was only one person to ask to lead that, recorded by Zoom.
