Volunteer in Lourdes

With Lourdes Volunteers, you may serve our pilgrims who travel with us during their special needs pilgrimages, or you may serve the Sanctuaries in Hospitalité service.

How is Our Lady inviting you to serve?

As you prayerfully consider how you may best serve God and honor Our Lady in Lourdes, keep in mind that there is no small service. Perhaps you have many abilities and will discuss many options for service with our staff in order to determine where you are best suited. Perhaps you know that you want to use your medical expertise to help our special needs pilgrims. Perhaps you wish to utilize a totally different strength, like good housekeeping skills. Perhaps you take joy in serving food or washing dishes.

When done joyfully, lovingly, and for God, all service contains its own unique graces, and we are blessed to experience these graces with you.

Where can I learn more about the different types of service?

Please read our Serving at Lourdes page, which will provide you with some general information about the requirements for service. After that, you’ll want to read the pages that we have dedicated to the specific types of service (Pilgrimage, Medical, Lourdes Youth Service, University, and Hospitalité).

What’s the next step?

Pray, pray, pray! Take a look at our 2017 Pilgrimage Schedule, to see when you might be able to travel with us.

Of course, our office staff is here to help you, and answer any questions you may have.
