2023 Pilgrimage Schedule

Learn more about when and how we make pilgrimage to Lourdes!

Bernadette said she felt a mysterious pull to go to the Grotto.  If you are feeling an “inexplicable pull” to go to Lourdes, surely Our Lady has placed this most beautiful desire in your heart.  By making pilgrimage with Our Lady of Lourdes North American Volunteers, you are opening yourself up to grow in holiness and be transformed by the loving example of St. Bernadette in simplicity, humility and obedience.

Passport Application UPDATE: according to the Department of State, EXPEDITED passports will take up to thirteen (13) weeks for processing. For example if you applied June 26, you may not receive your passport until September 25. Please call the Department of State with questions 877-487-2778 or read their website.
