This page gives a brief insight into what HCPT aspires to, what we do to help get it there, and the principles and behaviours we share and believe in. You can read more about these strategic aims and actions in the run up to our 60th anniversary here.
HCPT’s Vision is its ‘dream’, its source of inspiration and its ultimate achievement. That Vision is something we hope you can identify with:
Changing lives through pilgrimage, sharing God’s gifts of love, friendship and joy.
HCPT is a volunteer-based charitable organisation founded in response to Our Lady’s invitation to go on pilgrimage to Lourdes. Its aim is to enable those who may need help, especially the young, to experience pilgrimage, and it does that in small caring groups, seeking to share with
joy, the gift of God’s love.
HCPT’s Values drive its culture and provide a framework upon which decisions are guided. Values are the beliefs that are shared within HCPT. They define how the charity behaves when undertaking its Mission.
Value: HCPT respects and cherish each individual, regardless of differences
Love and respect: HCPT shows and shares God’s love through compassion and care
Faith: HCPT’s pilgrimages are based on Christian faith, welcoming people of all faiths and none
Community: Through commitment, care and service, HCPT builds joyful communities
Celebration: HCPT celebrate life and love
"HCPT is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I think everyone should experience"
