Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experience
A Virtual Pilgrimage Experience™ brings the actual experience of Lourdes to you!
Like an actual Pilgrimage to Lourdes, the Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experience™ is a holy encounter with God under the watchful care of Our Lady of Lourdes. Available in both English and Spanish, Virtual Pilgrimage Experience™ re-creates a pilgrimage to Lourdes without ever leaving home. This prayerful experience draws pilgrims nearer to God in the company of Our Lady as they are guided through a prayerful visit to the Grotto, the experience of the water, prayer in a Rosary procession and a Eucharistic blessing.
Lourdes Volunteers takes great care to preserve the reverence and sanctity of the pilgrimage experience as we bring it to those who cannot actually go to Lourdes. From the parish pew in two hours or in a classroom with a 40-minute program, Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experience™ is a perfect spiritual experience for parishes, schools, universities, nursing homes, convents and prisons!
