“I worked hard on this painting because it is for Mother Mary.” – Lina, age 9″
We kindly ask for your support and prayers. If you are already a faithful donor, we thank you, as every gift helps us sustain our mission of healing and transformation. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended our current pilgrimages and Virtual Pilgrimage Experiences. We are continuing to work hard to provide our services to help those in need. At this time, we are able to continue to share Lourdes Water and to provide prayer support and Catholic resources to our members. We are also continuing to plan and prepare for the upcoming pilgrimage season. When travel is safe again, with your partnership, we will be ready!
Our Stars of Mary monthly donors are our shining stars that help light the way for the mission of our association. Each monthly donation is able to guide our way through all twelve months of the year!
“A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” (Rev. 12: 1)
Bringing pilgrims and volunteers to the Grotto and sharing the Message of Lourdes around the world requires a dedicated staff and a variety of resources. Your financial support keeps our lights on, our phones open, and our printer stocked, allowing us to continue our holy mission.
Through the generosity of our donors, this fund makes the journey to Lourdes possible for special needs pilgrims seeking healing and grace at the Grotto. Andrea’s Wish provides partial or full sponsorship to pilgrims as available.
Guadalupe House is our hub of American Hospitality in France, allowing us to better serve our members during their service. Renovations are currently underway, and we need your help to make this house a home!
Over 800 students from Franciscan University have served with Lourdes Volunteers since 2004, serving the Sanctuary and the sick and embracing St. Bernadette’s call to simplicity, obedience and humility.
