FRANCE PILGRIMAGES

LOURDES

Since 1958 when the Apparitions appeared to the young Bernadette Soubirous, pilgrims have flocked to this location in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Over the years we are always pleased to hear pilgrims returning home with fond memories from this particularly poignant destination. You may wish to visit the famous Basilica and the religious Grotto of our Lady where pilgrims flock in their thousands to bathe in the water from Bernadette’s spring known for its healing qualities. Each evening a torchlight procession takes place followed by the last Mass of the day, giving thanks for all the graces received at the Sanctuary during the day.
