It is only with your support that we are able to bring the sick and handicapped to Lourdes, catechize youth in service and shares the Message of Lourdes in parishes, schools, prisons and beyond. Because we receive no federal, state or Church funding, it is only through the private contributions and the tremendous generosity of individual donors that we have been able to bring over 5,000 pilgrims and volunteers to Lourdes and to reach over 150,000 pilgrims through Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experiences. A Catholic Public Association of the Christian Faithful of the Syracuse Diocese, we ask for your continued support.

Andrea’s Wish is a sponsorship fund created to assist special needs pilgrims to Lourdes in loving memory of Andrea Bartolomeo.
Andrea was a pilgrim who answered the calling to Lourdes and humbly showed us the true road to holiness with her powerful example to “see Christ in everyone.” She gave witness to the possibilities for the critically ill, terminally ill and profoundly disabled to make pilgrimage to Lourdes with prudent planning and expert supportive care.
It was Andrea’s Wish that
any seriously ill or disabled person
especially those without family,
caregivers or financial assistance —
be granted the opportunity to make
holy pilgrimage to Lourdes.
This fund is only possible with the generosity of donors who wish, as Andrea wished, that every person with the desire is able to journey to Lourdes for healing and grace. Donations for Andrea’s Wish are collected year round and are dispersed as available to pilgrims who request funds. Sponsorships are granted for partial or full pilgrimage amount.
- In 2017, Andrea’s Wish provided $133,488 in support of 47 special needs pilgrims
- In 2016, Andrea’s Wish provided $114,823 in support of 39 special needs pilgrims
