Pastoral theme - Sanctuary of our Lady of Lourdes

The Sanctuary of Lourdes proposes as a pastoral theme the words that Mary, the Mother of God, entrusted to Bernadette Soubirous on 2 March 1858:
“Go and tell the priests that a chapel be built here and that people should come here in procession”.
Taking into account the content and richness of these words and to give pilgrims a better taste of them, they will be presented in in three stages:

YEAR 2022:
“Go and tell the priests…”


YEAR 2023:
“…that a chapel be built here…”


YEAR 2024:
“…that they come here in procession…”

Lourdes, meditation 2024

Go tell the priests to come [here] in procession

Pastoral look at Lourdes today
to the attention of pilgrimage directors,
hospitality chairs, group leaders,
chaplains, employees and volunteers of the sanctuary
