The Sanctuary cannot do anything without donations
The Virgin Mary appeared to Bernadette Soubirous in Lourdes in 1858.
She asked her : “Go and tell the priests to build a chapel here and to
come in procession”.
This was the beginning of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes.
Even today, millions of pilgrims travel the world to come to Lourdes.
Foremost among them are people who are sick, with a disability or who are suffering. Welcoming each pilgrim in a dignified way entails significant overheads and investments.
The Sanctuary cannot do anything without donations.
