Every weekend, at the Grotto, an international rosary by torchlight

The Sanctuary never closes the winter and that is fortunate; so, throughout the year, pilgrims can come to bare their souls in front of the Grotto and leave filled with renewed strength force.

Every weekend, at the Grotto, an international rosary by torchlight

The torchlight procession is the most popular image of Lourdes. This winter, there will be an international rosary by torchlight at the Grotto on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, starting at 8:30 pm. This will allow pilgrims or visitors to feel more welcomed with a specific occasion of prayer.

The Capuchin community, the St. Martin community and the community of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate will be in charge of leading this event, as well as any of the other chaplains who would like to be present.

Thank you to all those whose support means that, during the winter, our Sanctuary is truly a place of life and healing.

Most Rev. Olivier RIBADEAU DUMAS
Rector of the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes
