You Make Lourdes Volunteers Possible

It is only with your support that we are able to bring the sick and handicapped to Lourdes, catechize youth in service and shares the Message of Lourdes in parishes, schools, prisons and beyond. Because we receive no federal, state or Church funding, it is only through the private contributions and the tremendous generosity of individual donors that we have been able to bring over 5,000 pilgrims and volunteers to Lourdes and to reach over 150,000 pilgrims through Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experiences. A Catholic Public Association of the Christian Faithful of the Syracuse Diocese, we ask for your continued support.
