Join a Pilgrimage

Each June and October, we offer Special Needs Pilgrimages for those with illness, disabilities, and other special needs, accompanied by a team of medical and lay volunteers who provide supportive care for each pilgrim.

Volunteer in Lourdes

Being a volunteer at Lourdes is both a profound and extraordinary privilege. All persons of goodwill with a sincere desire to assist those in need are invited to offer service at Lourdes!

Bring Lourdes to Your Parish

Draw nearer to God in the company of Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Bernadette as we share the reverence and sanctity of the Pilgrimage experience with those who cannot actually go to Lourdes.

Become a Member Today

As members, we love each person as Christ, caring for Him as His Mother would. We are to live the Message of Lourdes of prayer and penance with the humility and simplicity of Bernadette and the graciousness of the Mother of God.

An American Oasis of Hospitality Coming to Lourdes

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! 

Franciscan University Fund

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.

Support Andrea's Wish

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.

Request Lourdes Water

We have 1 oz. bottles of pure, undiluted spring water directly from the Grotto for those wishing to answer Our Lady’s call to “Go drink at the spring and wash yourself.”
