2024 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.
