In prayer at home, through the Rosary, at Mass, at Adoration or in sacrifice and suffering.

By assisting others as airport volunteers, companions, caregivers, housekeepers and as medical professionals

As volunteers in the Sanctuary, in the Baths, the Accueils, at the trains and at ceremonies.

Evangelizing through Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experiences bringing the grace of Lourdes to those unlikely or unable to make the journey to France.

In loving each person as Christ, caring as the Blessed Mother would care for Jesus.
