    • Planning Bicycle Trips Around Brugge

      Brugge Apr 18, 2014 at 6:39 AM

      Would like to plan 3 days of "bicycle loop" trips from Brugge to the countryside and return.. with each trip being around 40 to 60 KM. I found a great route planning tool on the web but its all in flemish. Happy to pay somone to help me "map out the routes" but would prefer not to be in an organized tour per se. Suggestions welcome!!!

      Brugge Apr 3, 2014 at 12:05 AM

      Hello,

      I will be visiting Bruges end Sept and will head on to Lille after that. Just wondering, are there frequent trains to Lille from Bruges? And should i pre-book tickets online?

      Thanks!

      Sacred Heart Statue

      by V.Heywood Online Now Oct 14, 2010 at 7:46 AM

      There is a statue of the Sacred Heart on the alter of our little Oratory commemorating the lads from what was then called 'Kingstown' (now named DĂșn Laoghaire) County Dublin, Ireland, who were killed in the 1st World War in the trenches and at the Battle of Ypres. The little Oratory is one of Ireland's treasures as its Celtic Revival Murals, painted by Sister Concepta Lynch, are unique.

      The Dominican Sisters tell me that the statue came from the town in Flanders where the Irish soldiers of the Irish Guards where billeted. They didn't know exactly where. Helped to research this question I have found that the Statue may have been sent from Poperinge; I've noted in your photo of the Church interior that the Altar is without a statue.

      My question is: Would any member of Poperinge Church congregation be able to confirm my theory by searching the church archives?

      I would be most grateful if I could be informed as to whether my hunch is correct.
