Although we cannot go to France or visit your parish community during this extraordinary time, we are blessed to bring Lourdes virtually to you with an exceptional blessing from the Holy Father! Pope Francis has proclaimed a Plenary Indulgence for Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage ExperienceTM to be broadcast or live-streamed directly to you with the same grace as if we were in your local parish or the Sanctuary in France!
Each experience is led by a one of our trained guides. The Eucharistic Exposition, Benediction, Rosary and Blessing are broadcast live from different parishes each month. We hope you will attend each broadcast and encourage others to join us.
Together we will journey to the Grotto of our hearts and unite together under the mantle of Our Lady of Lourdes. Please prepare for this spiritual journey by preparing your heart instead of your suitcase… There will be no turbulence or frequent flyer miles—but you will receive all of the same graces!
A blessed pilgrimage kit including Lourdes Water, an image of Our Lady in the Grotto that has been touched to an actual piece of the Grotto at Lourdes (third class relic), a candle and a rosary will be mailed to all that RSVP for the online broadcasts.
A pilgrimage kit is not necessary to participate in the pilgrimage. We ask you only to request one kit and to save and reuse the items for each broadcast. If you received a pilgrimage kit for the Virtual Pilgrimages broadcast in July or August, the contents are the same and we ask you to use these items again. Kits are limited and will be provided only as supplies last. Thank you for this consideration to allow us to share Lourdes Water and the other holy items with others.
We are excited to be united all together each month, in prayer, “in the Grotto of our Hearts.”
