Your children, young and old, can participate in many activities organised by the Sanctuary. You are spoiled for choice!
The ‘Youth and Family Service’ of the Sanctuary is there to advise and assist you in planning the programme of your stay and pilgrimage. The activities below will help the children, adolescents and young people with you, to discover the Sanctuary, the story of the Apparitions and the message of Lourdes, experience a spiritual journey, learn and deepen their faith, and also, for the over 16s, learn about Service in Lourdes and discover the surrounding area.
The booklet of pastoral suggestions for groups of children and young people can give you ideas for activities. Ask the Youth and Family Service of the Sanctuary if you are interested in any of these activities for one or other of your children or young people.
