Marlene Watkins, President and Foundress of Lourdes Volunteers, was named by Our Sunday Visitor as one of their 2015 Catholics of the Year.

For her founding and continued leadership of Lourdes Volunteers, which serves the sick in Lourdes, brings the sick to Lourdes, and brings Lourdes to those who cannot go (via Virtual Pilgrimages), Marlene humbly finds herself in the company of other notable Catholics, including Archbishop Charles Chaput and Live Action’s Lila Rose.
