Why come with us?
It is our blessing to join pilgrims on their journey to Lourdes and to pray with them in the Grotto. Celebrating 20 years in service to the sick this July, we continue to accompany volunteer service pilgrimages to support Our Lady’s pilgrims when journeying to the Grotto. Our pilgrimages are accompanied by Catholic priests and leaders faithful to the Church. It is our privilege to assist volunteers in preparation, in travel and on a transformative life-changing journey to the Grotto bringing healing not only to those they serve but for themselves for many years to come.
- Daily Mass, Grotto Mass and International Mass
- Candlelight Rosary and Eucharistic Processions
- Opportunities to receive the Sacraments, including Anointing of the Sick and Reconciliation
- Visit to the Piscines (Baths) – the Baths are open limited hours, but immersion into the tub is not available at this time. Families can enter together, remain clothed, and experience the “Gesture of Water” in guided prayer, similar to Bernadette during the 9th apparition with Lourdes Water poured over the hands for personal use
- Tours of the Sanctuary and town of Lourdes
- Serve alongside volunteers from all over the world, forming unspoken bonds of friendship
