A Time of Joy

Joyous Easter! We celebrate the joyous Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ from Easter to Pentecost, not just one day, but 50 days. Easter gives us great opportunity to rejoice and pay homage to the One that brings joy throughout the season.

At Lourdes Volunteers, joy abounds in everything we do from pilgrimages to Lourdes, France, to the Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experience™. We have been blessed to serve those seeking hope, healing and peace.

Pilgrimage to Lourdes, France in 2017

†347 pilgrims and volunteers made the physical journey

†59 special needs pilgrims accompanied by 34 medical volunteers

†Joining us from 31 states and 5 countries

Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experience™ “from the pew without the turbulence”

†Visited parishes, schools, colleges, hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, and refugee detention homes

†Over 20,000 “pilgrims”

†Across 15 states, 7 countries and on 4 continents

Thank you for making all this possible!

We are especially joyous over the 70th miracle officially recognized at Lourdes on the 160th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Blessed Mother to St. Bernadette. The declaration of this miracle serves as a great reminder of the extraordinary healing power of faith and prayer that is Lourdes.

Naturally, no discussion of joy would be complete without recognition of our fantastic volunteers! We would not be able to serve Our Lord and His Mother or spread the Gospel Message of Lourdes without you. Your generosity in spirit and in resources allows us to serve the sick and suffering and to make our evangelical mission “to share the message of Lourdes” a reality. We are forever grateful for your kindness.

We pray for you before the Blessed Sacrament. Please pray for us!

Wishing you the joy that only the Easter Season can bring!
