July 16, 2022 – The 20th Anniversary of our Founding

3 ways to continue celebrating 20 years of service to Our Lady and her pilgrims in our Year of Grace and Gratitude:

Become a member of our Association (if you’re not one already)

Assist / help someone at Lourdes or at home who has an unmet need and no one else to help them.  

Prayerfully consider a generous donation to Lourdes Volunteers so that we can continue the good work started 20 years ago.

    A Special Year of Grace and Gratitude

    We are honored to share a full year of grace and gratitude with YOU!

    Thank you for embracing our mission, to serve the sick and suffering in Lourdes and at home. Our holy work continues to lead souls to our true home in Heaven.

    Each month of this special year we will reflect on and celebrate a different aspect of the history of our association. 

    This August, we pray in gratitude for our mission:

    To extend the invitation of the Immaculate Conception as given to Bernadette in the Grotto at Lourdes; to serve the sick and suffering at Lourdes and at home following the loving example of St. Bernadette in simplicity, humility, and obedience and in gratitude for our charism of LOVE, expressed and animated as FAMILY with JOY!
