Never Mind Chris Frome Congratulations to Canon Kieron

Canon Kieron on his bike
The cycling phenomenon that is Canon Kieron O'Brien is just completing his sponsored cycle ride from Chichester to Lourdes in the south of France to join up with the diocesan pilgrimage which begins on Friday 26 July. Previously parish priest at St Richard's, Chichester he is now parish priest of St Joseph's, Brighton which is in need of funds for work that needs to be done on the Church. As the new parish is in a poorer area he decided that he would raise funds by doing something himself and so he got on his bike and cycled to Lourdes.

This is not the first time he has done this journey, Canon Kieron who is a regular cyclist was expecting to arrive in Lourdes in the foot of the Pyrennes, the site of Chris Frome great stage win in the recent Tour de France, within a week.

Canon Kieron will join hundreds of A&B diocesan pilgrimages, young, old, sick and disabled in Lourdes where he will be chaplain to one of the groups.
